The party in a representation to the EC had said that the proposal violated Section 15 of Representation of the People Act, which states that state assembly election cannot be notified any time earlier than 6 months before the date on which the duration of the sitting Assembly expires.
    
"The term of the Arunachal Pradesh state legislative Assembly will expire on November 4 next and scheduling the two elections simultaneously can hamper ongoing development projects in the state as the financial year is about to close besides forcing a division of manpower during elections," the
party said in the representation.
