Karnataka Final Results 2018 LIVE: When, where and how to get latest updates; official numbers at eciresults.nic.in

Karnataka Election Results 2018 LIVE Updates: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Congres are in a do-or-die battle as counting of votes for the Karnataka Assembly elections in underway. According to latest trends at 2.30 pm, the BJP is leading on over 106 seats and Congress is leading on over 72 seats. Pollsters have indicated it's a neck and neck race between the Karnataka's ruling Congress and the challenger BJP. A few exit polls have predicted a hung Assembly and former prime minister HD Deve Gowda's JD(S) as a possible kingmaker in Karnataka. 
In one of the most high-profile and bitterly fought elections in recent times, 222 of the 224 seats went to polls on May 12. The trends are likely to begin to trickle within an hour and all results are expected to be declared by late evening.

Karnataka Verdict on India TV: Catch live update son counting of votes for 222 assembly seats

 
What is the time and date of the counting of votes in Karnataka?

Counting of votes would begin at 8 am on Tuesday in nearly 40 counting centres.

How many seats went to poll?
In one of the most high-profile and bitterly fought elections in recent times, 222 of the 224 seats went to polls on May 12.

What does the trend say?
The trends are likely to begin to trickle within an hour and all results are expected to be declared by late evening.

Which 2 seats didn't go to poll, and why?
Polling for RR Nagar seat was deferred on account of alleged electoral malpractices, while it was countermanded in Jayanagar seat following the death of the BJP candidate.

What will happen if Congress wins?
In case of a clear verdict in favour of the Congress, the grand old party will have broken the jinx of no political party retaining the reins of the state since 1985, when the erstwhile Janata Dal formed the government under Ramakrishna Hegde for a second consecutive term. A victory in Karnataka would help boost the sagging morale of the Congress, which is on a downhill journey, losing state after state since Narendra Modi came to power at the Centre.

Will Siddaramaiah be the CM?
It is, however, unclear if Siddaramaiah, a backward class leader with a formidable reputation, will be the next chief minister in the event of a Congress victory.

What will happen if Congress loses Karnataka?
Losing Karnataka will drastically weaken its claim for the leadership of a broader anti-BJP alliance that is being talked about.

What will happen if BJP wins?
A victory for the BJP will reflect the enduring charisma of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his capacity to power his party to victory across the country, clearing demographic and topographical obstacles. It would also further galvanise the BJP cadre before the Assembly elections in party-ruled Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh later this year.

What role JDS will play?
The JDS may or may not win the elections, but will play the kingmaker if the electorate gives a split verdict, making Deve Gowda an important player in the state politics once again.

How many voters are there in Karnataka?
There are 4.96 crore eligible voters in Karnataka

What was the voting percentage in May 12 polls?
The final voting percentage was 72.13% in Karnataka.

What's the version of Exit polls on Karnataka?
The poll of Exit Polls says that the BJP will be the single largest party in Karnataka or might get a simple majority. One or two Exit polls gave the upper hand to Congress. However, the Congress has claimed that the party is going to win more than 120 seats in Karnataka

Who will be the CM if BJP wins?
BS Yeddyurappa will be the Chief Minister if the BJP gets a majority in the Karnataka assembly.
