The Election Commission, however, did not specify the reason for fresh polling.

The Chhaniyana-1 and 2 polling booths in Vadgam, Viramgam-27 booth in Viramgam, Nava Naroda in Daskroi, and Nhara and Sankrada booths in Savli will have re-polling, the commission said.

Dalit leader Jignesh Mevani contested from the Vadgam constituency.

Separately, the poll panel has ordered the counting of votes in ten booths using Voter Verified Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) as the presiding officials forgot to wipe out the mock drill poll results from these Electronic Voting Machines (EVM).

Counting using the VVPAT slips will be for Ralisn-3 in Visnagar, Piludra-1 and Katosan-3 booths of Becharaji, Jamatha of Modasa, Vejalpur-58 of Vejalpur, Vastral-55 of Vatva, Khadiya-16 of Jamalpur-Khadiya, Pilol-2 of Savli, Gojpur and Songir booths of Sankheda constituencies.

There would also be random counting of VVPATs at a booth each in every constituency when votes would be tallied on 18 December, it said.
