Over 3,600 candidates in fray for 224 seats

Over 3,600 candidates are in the fray for the 5 May Karnataka assembly elections, the state election panel chief said Saturday, the last day for withdrawal of nominations.

The exact number of candidates in the contest for 224 seats of the 225-member assembly that includes one nominated member, however, would be known on Sunday as complete details of withdrawals from across the state were yet to be received, chief electoral officer Anil Kumar Jha said.

He said nominations of 3,692 candidates out of 3,945 were found valid after scrutiny on 18 April. The last date for filing the papers was 17 April.
