Karnataka election would witness a fierce battle between the Congress and BJP. The Assembly polls in 2013 were won with a majority by the Congress. Last time, the party registered a victory getting a total of 122 seats. The other parties like BJP and JD(S) were not even close, winning 40 seats each. The 2008 Karnataka election result, however, suggested a different story. The BJP won the most votes, registering a vote count of 110. Congress came second with 80 seats and JD(S) won only 28 seats, a down in the seat count by 30 from the last Assembly polls in 2004. INC has ruled the states for the lengthiest time in the state, the distant runner-ups are BJP and JD(S).

The current Karnataka Legislative Assembly expires on May 28, 2018, and therefore polls for the new assembly will be held on May 12, 2018. The updated Karnataka Election Result 2018 will be available as it is declared.
