The Election Commission on Friday said it has decided to holdÂ 65 pending by-elections and the Bihar assembly polls "around the same time". There are 64 vacancies in the legislative assemblies of various states and one in Lok Sabha. "One of the major factors in clubbing them together is the relative ease of movement of central forces and related logistics issues," a Commission statement said. The term of the Bihar assembly ends on November 29 and elections are likely to be held sometime in October-November.
