The State Election Commission (SEC) has imposed a ban on all exit polls for GHMC till the evening of December 3 as re-polling will be held at some polling booths due to technical issues.
Meanwhile, re-polling will be held at two polling booths in Old Malakpet as the polling stopped with in-correct printing of CPI symbol on the ballot paper. The CPI demanded the EC to conduct to re-polling after they found the party’s symbol was wrongly printed.
