The Election Commission of India said elections for the 60 seats of the Manipur will take place on February 27 and March 3.
The poll body followed its 2017 move to hold the assembly elections in two phases.
Given the COVID-19 threat, the number of voters per booth is likely to be less, therefore, leading to an increase in the number of polling stations this time.
The 2017 Manipur elections also took place in two phases: March 4 and March 8. The results were announced on March 11.
