Rajasthan election date: The Election Commission of India (EC) on Monday announced that Rajasthan will go to polls on November 25 while the counting of votes will take place on December 3. Meanwhile, the state will witness polling in a single phase. Rajasthan has 200 total seats. In Rajasthan – which will see a direct fight between the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party on November 25 – anti-incumbency is an important factor.

Since 1993, when the BJP came to power after a stint of President’s rule, the state has alternated between the Congress and the BJP.

In 2018, Congress won 100 seats in 2018 Assembly polls. BJP followed at  73 seats while BSP garnered 6 seats. Rashtriya Loktantrik Party (RLP) gathered 3 seats with the Communist Party of India (Marxist) and Bhartiya Tribal Party (BTP) mustering 2 seats each.

Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) managed to grab just one seat while there were 13 independent candidates in the 2018 Assembly Elections. 

In the last assembly election, BJP managed to gather 38.77% while BSP took 4.03% and RLP managed 2.40%. CPM managed to gather 1.22% vote share and BTP 0.72% while 0.33% vote share went to RLD . Meanwhile, independent candidates took 9.47% of the vote share. 

The BJP also has the added advantage of being in power at the Centre, which allows it to pitch to voters its “double-engine” capability – a promise of more development if the governments in Delhi and the state are run by the same party.

But Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has been at work for months now, countering the expected anti-incumbency by launching a series of welfare schemes – and going the whole hog in publicising them as part of his vision for the state.
