New Delhi: The Election Commission of India (ECI) will announce the schedule for the Karnataka's assembly elections on Wednesday.

The Commission will hold a press conference at 11:30 AM in Plenary Hall at Vigyan Bhawan in New Delhi, said the commission in a press statement.

The term of the 224-member Karnataka Legislative Assembly ends in May. The model code of conduct will kick in immediately after announcement of the schedule.

On Sunday Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said that the BJP would release its list of candidates after the announcement of election dates for Karnataka.

Meanwhile, the Opposition Congress and JD(S) have already announced their first list of candidates.

Meanwhile, state Congress president DK Shivakumar said the party’s second list of 100 candidates will be released after Thursday (March 30).

In its first list released last week, Congress named 124 candidates.
