New Delhi: Elections to the 60-member Arunachal Pradesh assembly will be held along with Lok Sabha polls on April 9, the Election Commission announced.

The decision of the poll body came days after state governor Lt Gen (retd) Nirbhay Singh recommended dissolution of the state assembly on March 6.

“Having considered all relevant factors, the Commission has decided that simultaneous election to the state legislative assembly for all 60 assembly constituencies of the state would be held along with the 16th Lok Sabha election,” an EC order said late this evening.

The three Election Commissioners had met on Friday to discuss the issue.
The Arunachal Pradesh Governor had on Thursday announced the dissolution of the assembly after accepting the recommendation of the state cabinet which demanded holding of state elections.
