Imphal, June 3:

The stage is set for the counting of votes in the 18th Lok Sabha Election, conducted in seven phases across 543 parliamentary constituencies nationwide. The Election Commission of India (ECI) has announced that the counting will commence at 8 am tomorrow, June 4.
In Manipur, the Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) has confirmed that preparations are complete for the vote counting to begin at 8 am. The Directorate of Information and Public Relations (DIPR) has installed a Digibox at its office to display real-time counting results, ensuring transparency and immediate updates for the public and media.
For the two parliamentary constituencies (PCs) in Manipur, elections were held in the first and second phases. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) did not field a candidate in the Outer Manipur constituency, instead supporting the Naga People’s Front (NPF) candidate Timothy Zimik. In the Inner Manipur constituency, the BJP fielded the sitting Education Minister, Th. Basanta Kumar. The Indian National Congress (INC) fielded candidates in both constituencies: Dr. Bimol Akoijam for Inner Manipur and Alfred K. Arthur for Outer Manipur. Altogether, six candidates are contesting in the Inner Manipur PC, while four candidates are vying for the Outer Manipur PC.
