The Union law min­istry will ex­am­ine the fea­si­bil­i­ties of con­duct­ing Assem­bly and Lok Sabha polls si­mul­ta­ne­ously, af­ter the elec­tion com­mis­sion (EC) de­scribed the idea as “not in­sur­mount­able”.

The elec­tion com­mis­sion had writ­ten to the law min­istry two months ago say­ing that si­mul­ta­ne­ous elec­tions can be ex­plored if there is a po­lit­i­cal con­sen­sus on the is­sue.

The min­istry has formed a panel to give a re­port on how to flesh out the de­tails of the EC’s pro­posal.
