Delimitation commission tasked with redrawing parliamentary and assemblies’ constituencies in Jammu and Kashmir will visit the union territory next week, Election Commission spokesperson informed earlier today.

It will be visiting Jammu and Kashmir between July 6-9 to interact with political parties, public representatives and officials of the Union Territory. This will help the commission to gather "first hand" information of the mega exercise to carve out new constituencies, the EC said on Wednesday.

A decision in this regard was taken after a meeting of the poll panel that was chaired by delimitation commission chairperson Justice (retd) Ranjana Prakash Desai and Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sushil Chandra, it said.

"The commission expects that all stakeholders will cooperate in this endeavour and provide valuable suggestions so that the task of delimitation is completed timely," an Election Commission (EC) spokesperson said in a statement issue here.
