The Election Commission of India (ECI) has announced several measures to facilitate fair and transparent elections in the state.

With 26 parliamentary constituencies, Gujarat registered a maximum of 658 nomination forms, indicating significant participation of candidates and political parties in the electoral process. Notably, in Surat, BJP candidate Mukesh Dalal emerged victorious unopposed after eight candidates withdrew their nominations.

A major initiative taken by the authorities is the establishment of 68 new check posts in Ahmedabad. These checkpoints monitor and maintain security during the voting process. In addition, voting will take place at a total of 4,132 polling booths in the city, ensuring adequate accessibility for voters from different areas.

Of these stands, 931 are categorized as critical, indicating increased attention and safety measures at these locations. This categorization is intended to prevent untoward incidents and ensure a peaceful voting environment.
