Lok Sabha Elections: The central election panel of the BJP will reconvene next week

NEW DELHI: The sources claim that the BJP’s national election committee will meet again next week to discuss the impending 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

The party’s Delhi headquarters will host the Central Election Committee meeting.
“There will be another round of CEC on March 5, 6, and 7 to discuss and decide the names of the candidates for the rest of the seats for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections,” a senior party official said on Saturday.
The insider went on to say that the party would discuss the list of candidates voted upon at the last meeting.
“There will be three more CEC rounds to talk about the remaining seats. At these rounds, a few names that were addressed at the previous meeting will be brought up again. Deep debate is necessary since the BJP is a committed party and believes that every seat matters, according to the source.

The names of the candidates for the meeting were discussed with Yogi Adityanath, the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh.
Leaders of the BJP from Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, Kerala, Gujarat, Jharkhand, and Uttarakhand were also consulted over the candidate names.
All of the Assamese politicians who were nominated for Lok Sabha seats were considered at the meeting, according to BJP sources.
