MUMBAI: The polling for the nine phase elections is over, and now as the country awaits the results of the 2014 general elections, CNN-IBN and IBN7 are gearing for the most comprehensive coverage of the election results. The network has created 100 hours of programming for this election season.  

While CNN-IBN is telecasting A Billion Votes, IBN7 has launched a post poll survey show called Mera Vote Meri Sarkar. The two will be a five day long election coverage show, which will culminate in the counting day special programming on 16 May.

Starting 12 May, 5 pm onwards, the two channels will bring the most definitive coverage on the final phase of elections complete with latest exclusives, updates and insightful analyses and the most precise projections as they track the climax of the world?s largest electoral exercise. 

According to the network, the center piece of this programming line up will be a nationwide post-poll study conducted by the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies (CSDS). Covering 22 states and over 18,050 respondents the survey will include vote share percentages and seat projections and will flesh out in detail the likely post counting day scenarios. The finale of the channel?s elections coverage will happen on 16 May, 6 am onwards. 

This special coverage will include up to the minute trends, seat tally, extensive live coverage from across the country and the most incisive analysis of emerging scenarios.

IBN network?s coverage will be driven by the channel?s formidable team of journalists led by CNN-IBN, IBN7 and IBN-Lokmat editor-in-chief Rajdeep Sardesai along with country?s most notable political experts namely Swapan Dasgupta, Ramachandra Guha, Surjit Bhalla, Manini Chatterjee, Sandeep Shastri, Kumar Ketkar, Dipankar Gupta, T R Ramachandran, Aakar Patel, Sharat Pradhan, Shaibal Gupta, Paranjoy Guha Thakurta, Sanjaya Baru, Rajeeva Karandikar, Sanjay Kumar, Hilal Ahmed, Ajay Singh, Nilanjan Mukhopadhyay and Purushottam Agrawal.

?With the results of the biggest elections of our times around the corner, the entire nation is keeping a close eye on the outcome. IBN Network has been the front runner in election programming. Through our 100 hours of extensive coverage, we look forward to continue our leadership and deliver on the expectations of our viewers of being the most accurate & most trusted network for elections,? said Sardesai.
