The Election Commission today said candidates and their agents would not be allowed to enter the counting centres on May 2 unless they have a negative Covid test report or they have taken both doses of vaccine.

No public gathering outside the counting venue will be allowed during the process of counting. The counting of votes for Assembly polls in Assam, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Puducherry, besides bypolls of various Assembly and Lok Sabha seats, would begin at 8 am on May 2. — TNS
