Re-polling for the election for the teachers' quota MLC seat for Mahbubnagar-RangaReddy-Hyderabad was completed today, and the results will be announced on March 22 after the counting of votes polled.
Teachers in large numbers turned up to exercise their franchise at the 126 polling stations in the three districts. According to the information received, the poll percentage was 68.88% by 4 pm, of the 23,789 voters in the three districts.
The officials said that all those standing in the queues at 6 pm were also being allowed to vote.
Though the election was originally held on March 9, re-polling was necessitated as there was mix-up of two candidates' photographs in the ballot papers.
The counting of votes will be done on March 22 as mentioned earlier, and all arrangements are being made at the Amberpet GHMC Indoor Stadium.
