The bye-election was necessitated in Pala following the death of Kerala Congress (M) leader KM Mani in April this year. Mani represented Pala constituency for over 50 years.

Last month Election Commission has announced bye-elections for four assembly seats in Chhattisgarh, Kerala, Tripura, and Uttar Pradesh. The ECI had taken the decision to hold by-polls after taking into consideration various factors like local festivals, electoral rolls, weather conditions etc.

Bye-elections are also held in Pala in Kerala. The bye-elections are being conducted using EVMs and VVPATs.

The counting of votes will take place on September 27.
