About Madhya Pradesh Elections

The current Governor of this state is Ram Naresh Yadav and the Chief Minister is Shivraj Singh Chouhan who is a member of Bharatiya Janata Party. This state is considered as one of the major states regarding the politics and culture of India. Madhya Pradesh sends 40 members to the Indian Parliament. 29 members are elected to the Lok Sabha and 11 members are elected to the Rajya Sabha. The 2 political parties that are dominant in this state are the BJP and the INC. This state has a two-party system. The regional parties of this state have not seen much success in the recent elections. In the state elections of 2008 in November, the BJP had won a majority with 143 seats. It defeated INC which had grabbed on to only 71 seats. The Bahujan Samaj Party had won only 7 seats. See Madhya Pradesh Assembly Election 2013 Results

Results for the 2013 Madhya Pradesh Assembly elections were announced on 8 December 2013. BJP defeated the Congress thrice in a row. The Congress faced a major defeat in the state, winning merely 58 out of the 230 Assembly seats in the Madhya Pradesh Vidhan Sabha. The BJP bagged 165 out of the 230 Assembly constituencies, while the rest 7 were won by other political parties. Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan of the BJP registered a hat-trick by having been elected the CM of state for the third consecutive time, thus entering the Narendra Modi league who had registered a similar record in Gujarat.

The hopes of Congress leaders in the state including Digvjay Singh and Jyotiraditya Scindia, the Chief Ministerial candidate of the Congress in Madhya Pradesh. The election results indicated that the BJP had not been hit by an anti-incumbency wave in Madhya Pradesh (MP). Besides Chouhan’s success in MP was attributed to the then BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi’s campaigning in the state.

Administrative structure

The state of Madhya Pradesh has a unicameral legislature. Like all other states, MP has a parliamentary system of governance. The executive authority lies with the council of ministers headed by the Chief Minister. The Governor, who is the titular head of the state, is elected by the President of India. The state has High Court benches at Indore, Gwalior, and Jabalpur. Then there are the district courts and family courts. At the local level, the state is divided into many divisions which are further divided into districts. Each division is headed by a commissioner and each district by a collector.

Issues of the state

Though the state does not face any big problems like Naxalism, caste conflict, terrorism etc., but it has its own share of issues related to social development like education, women and child health, poverty, gender based discrimination etc.

The advent of multinational companies has destroyed the state's natural resources. The untreated effluents of the factories are discharged into the rivers thus leading to pollution of rivers and ground water.

The parties while campaigning had targeted each other on the issues of corruption, governance, economic growth and employment.
