Lucknow, Sept 26 (UNI): The Election Commission on Thursday announced to hold bypoll to Uttar Pradesh Rajya Sabha seat on Oct 16.

Uttar Pradesh, the seat of former Union minister Arun Jatiley, fell vacant on August 24 last after his death.

According to EC sources here, the notification for the seat would be issued on Friday and the last date for filing of the nomination is October 4. Scrutiny of papers would be done on the next day and October 9 is the last day for withdrawals.

The Rajya Sabha term of Jaitley, who passed away on Aug 24, was to end on Apr 2, 2024.

If required, the polling will be held on Oct 16 and the results would be declared on the same day.

However, as BJP has the majority in the UP Assembly hence, the party candidate would get elected without any problem.
