Karnataka elections 2023: What happens in case there is a hung Assembly?
According to most exit poll projections, the Congress will finish ahead of the BJP but chances of a hung Assembly are high. The pollsters also tipped HD Deve Gowda's Janata Dal-Secular to play kingmaker.
With mere hours left for the counting of votes in Karnataka, both the BJP and Congress have repeatedly assured they will win a clear majority. But with most exit polls predicting a hung Assembly, the JD(S) remains poised to play kingmaker in the state. An atmosphere of uncertainity however continues to prevail, with leaders from all three parties eschewing alliances.
