HYDERABAD: Even as political parties and teachers and graduates' associations have embarked upon the selection of candidates for the Legislative Council, the formation of the council is likely to go beyond four months from now.

The path to the actual revival of the council after nearly two decades is long and tortuous. The exercise has begun with the Chief Electoral Officer launching work on preparing electoral rolls for the graduates' and teachers' constituencies by inviting applications from eligible voters. The last date for receipt of applications is November 6 and the final rolls will be published by December 29, according to CEO V. Bhaskar.
