The bypolls for Dantewada (Chhattisgarh), Pala (Kerala), Badharghat (Tripura) and Hamirpur (Uttar Pradesh) Assembly seats will be held on 23 September.

The bypoll in Hamirpur was necessitated due to the disqualification of  Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Ashok Chandel. By-elections to 12 other Assembly seats in UP are also due as most of the sitting MLAs won the Lok Sabha elections this year. But the dates are yet to be announced by the poll panel.

The Dantewada, Pala and Badharghat bypolls were necessitated following the death of the respective sitting MLAs.

While the notification for the by-elections would be issued on 28 August, counting will be held on 27 September, the EC said.
