Live: Karnataka Election Results 2023


The results for the Karnataka Assembly elections are being announced today (May 13).  The elections to the 224-member assembly were held on May 10, while the nomination process ended on April 20. 

Of the total 224 constituencies, 36 seats were reserved for Scheduled Castes and 15 for Scheduled Tribes. Detailing the data of the electors, the Election Commission said that there are a total of 5.21 crores in the state and the number of 100 plus voters is 16,976.

It said over 58,000 polling stations had been set up across the state for the election. The Election Commission had earlier ordered the transfer of 10 police personnel, including a deputy commissioner of police (DCP), for "stricter enforcement of poll code and smooth conduct" of the May 10 elections.

The state poll body had also opened exclusive polling stations for young voters after setting up 'sakhi' polling station for women.

The southern state is currently ruled by the BJP. It came to power in 2019 after the collapse of the Congress-Janata Dal Secular coalition government.

In the 2018 assembly election in Karnataka, the BJP got 104 seats emerging as the single-largest party while the Congress won 78 seats and the JD(S) won in 37 constituencies.

This year, Karnataka witnessed a triangular contest between the three parties. Congress had made corruption a poll plank alleging that the ministers demand 40 per cent commission on public works from contractors.

The BJP government, led by Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai focused on the Kannadigas issue and reservation to the Lingayat and Vokkaliga communities.
