With counting for the Assembly and Parlimentary seats scheduled to take place on May 16, the election authorities have come up with elaborate arrangements. Twenty-four counting tables have been arranged in each of the 12 Assembly and 12 Parliamentary counting centres. There would be a total of 36 rounds of counting with each round lasting up to 20 minutes.

Hyderabad District Election Officer (DEO) Somesh Kumar, who conducted an inspection of the counting centres at Polytechinic College, Masab Tank, and Nizam College on Saturday, stated that earlier the Election Commission had decided to allocate only 14 counting tables for the centres. The DEO was of the opinion if there were more tables provided to the centres, the counting would be completed within 6 hours and the results would be declared by 2pm.

Every counting table would seat three officials---counting supervisor, counting assistant and a micro observer. A barricading would be provided at the counting centres so that the polling agents and political party representatives could observe the activity from a distance.

The DEO said that all the counting centres would be ready by May 14 and the counting procedure would be taken up in a transparent and democratic manner. He added that all the necessary arrangements had been made with regard to law and order, in coordination with the City Police Commissioner.
