The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is leading in 12 of the 15 Karnataka seats voted to decide the survival of the government led by Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa. The BJP had come to power in July this year after 17 Congress and Janata Dal Secular lawmakers were disqualified from the assembly under the anti-defection law, toppling the previous HD Kumaraswamy government.
The BJP currently has the simple majority of 105 in the 208 member assembly. The strength of the assembly was reduced following the disqualification of 17 MLAs.
The HD Kumaraswamy government fell in July when 17 legislators from Congress and JD(S) resigned. The disqualification of the MLAs by the then Karnataka assembly speaker necessitated the by-elections.
The Congress-Janata Dal (Secular) combine needs to win at least 12 seats to unseat the Yediyurappa government. The two parties have a combined strength of 101 seats in the assembly.
