Karnataka Election Results 2018 : BJP with 111 leads is almost at halfway mark, Congress struggling at 64

Karnataka Election Results 2018  Updates: Minutes after counting of votes in EVMs started for 222 of 224 Assembly seats began at 9 am, it became clear that this election will be too close to call before the final vote is counted. The first hour saw postal ballots being counted and there too, the trends were clearly showing a tight fight between the Congress and BJP. Two of the seats, RR Nagar and Jayanagar, will see repoll on May 28. The three-way contest will see a fight between the incumbent Siddaramaiah-led Congress government, the BJP which has projected BS Yeddyurappa as its chief ministerial candidate and the JD(S) which is likely to emerge as the kingmaker should the result end in a hung assembly. Voting, which took place on May 12, saw Karnataka’s highest voter turnout (72.13 per cent) since the 1952 Assembly elections. Counting of votes will be held across 38 centres in 33 districts of the state. (Agencies)
