The hill state of Uttarakhand goes to elections on February 15, 2017 in single phase to select representatives to its 70-member Vidhan Sabha. Predicting the exact outcome of the Uttarakhand assembly elections can be a little tricky. Nonetheless, one thing is for certain: the race for majority is going to be a fight to the finish. The Congress will work hard to retain power in the face of anti-incumbency and its dwindling fortunes in other states. In the last Assembly elections held in 2012, no party got majority. The Congress was the single largest party and it forged a post-poll alliance with the PDF to form government in the state. The BJP was the runner-up and it sat in opposition.
A pre-election survey conducted internally by Uttarakhand's ruling party Congress has predicted that the party is going to win 33 out of 70 seats in the state going to polls early next year. Uttarakhand Congress president Kishore Upadhyay claimed that the survey also shows the party in a formidable position in another 10 seats. He interpreted the results as an indication that the Congress may win 43 seats and said that if it becomes true, it will be the biggest electoral victory for a party in the history of the state.
