The Election Commission has announced the dates for the assembly elections in Bihar. The elections will be held in 3 phases on October 28, November 3 and November 7. The results will be declared on November 10. There will be elaborate arrangements in the light of the pandemic.

Bihar with a 243-member assembly will be the first large state to hold elections during the pandemic and will be a test of whether the Nitish-BJP alliance can still work. As a special case, Coronavirus patients will be given the last hour for voting.

In 2015, Nitish Kumar in alliance with the Congress and Lalu Prasad had swept the elections. However, that government fell after Lalu was arrested on graft charges and Nitish jumped ship to form his government with the help of the BJP.
