Karnataka Election 2019

Lok Sabha Elections for 28 seats will be conducted in 2 phases in Karnataka - April 18 (14 seats) and April 23 (14 seats). Counting of votes will take place on May 23.

Karnataka is the only southern state, where BJP has considerable power. In 2009 Lok Sabha elections, BJP won 19 seats, while Congress and JD(S) won 6 and 3 seats. In 2014 Lok Sabha elections, BJP won 17 seats, Congress won 9 seats and JD (S) won 2 seats. In the 2018 Karnataka assembly election, JD(S) formed the government with 37 seats by tying up with Congress that won 79 seats. Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) won 104 seats and is the principal opposition in Karnataka. The Congress-JD(S) alliance which is currently in power in the state will be looking to consolidate their numbers, while BJP is eyeing 22 seats. Realising the strength of BJP, the Congress has decided to give 10 seats for JD(U), hoping the sacrifices will be helpful in the national level to fight against the safforn party.
