Mint ST - - THE BRIEFING -

New Delhi: The Elec­tion Com­mis­sion (EC) on Thurs­day an­nounced elec­tions in Hi­machal Pradesh, but held off on mak­ing an an­nounce­ment for Gu­jarat. Vot­ing for the 68-seat Hi­machal Pradesh as­sem­bly will take place on 9 Novem­ber and the re­sults will be de­clared on 18 De­cem­ber. It will be a big test for the in­cum­bent Con­gress, just as its prin­ci­pal po­lit­i­cal ri­val, BJP, will be look­ing to wrest power and ex­pand its na­tional elec­toral foot­print in the north­ern state.
