ITANAGAR, Oct 15 � Around 90 per cent of voters exercised their democratic franchise in the bye-election to Kanubari Assembly constituency in Longding district of Arunachal Pradesh today.

�Approximately 90 per cent poling has been reported in Kanubari bye-poll. The election was conducted in a peaceful manner and there was no report of any untoward incident from any part of the constituency,� informed State Deputy Chief Electoral Officer D J Bhattacharjee.

The polling started at 7 am on an encouraging note with voters coming out in large numbers.

The Dy CEO said that from the beginning, voters� participation in all 28 polling stations of the constituency was very high.

Adequate security arrangement was made for today�s polling with the district authorities deploying police and Central paramilitary forces in all polling stations for a free and fair election, while the senior police officers kept vigilant eyes on the law and order situation.

The entire election process has been monitored by a General Observer and an Election Expenditure Observer deputed by the Election Commission, he said.

The bye-poll was necessitated after the seat fell vacant following the death of incumbent and veteran Congress leader Newlai Tingkhatra days before he was declared winner in the April 9, 2014 general polls. The former Minister had died of a massive brain stroke in a Gurgaon hospital on May 7 last.

Kanubari is witnessing a straight fight between BJP nominee Rongnai Maham and Congress�s Gabriel Denwang Wangsu, a former journalist.

Counting of votes will be taken up from 8 am on October 19 at Kanubari.
