2022 Assembly Election Results:- Counting of votes for five states begins
2022 Assembly Election Results are expected shortly as the opening of EVMs and counting of votes has started across all the five states (Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Goa, and Manipur) that recently went to the polls.
The poll pundits and psephologists, soon as the 2022 Assembly Elections concluded on March 7, started giving out Exit Polls for numbers for all the five states. As per several Exit Polls, the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) is expected to retain Uttar Pradesh (UP) which, the party fought under the name of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. Samajwadi Party (SP) is likely to see a surge in their number of MLAs however they are expected to be far from the majority mark.
It is the 10th March and the Election Results will be declared today. The EVMs across numerous counting centers spread across the five states have been started to open up. The much-anticipated results for the Elections will be likely to get clear by 2 pm noon. Talking about Punjab, as per pollsters, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is likely to overthrow the Channi-led Congress government. The AAP has fought the Punjab Elections under the leadership of Delhi CM with Bhagwant Mann as the Chief Ministerial candidate for the party. Goa is likely to see a hung assembly with neither the BJP nor the Congress getting a clear mandate.
Uttarakhand is another state where the ruling BJP has changed three Chief Ministers in a span of 6 months, the move behind this is speculated to be ‘Anti-Incumbency’, which the party had tried to remove. As per several exit polls and surveys, BJP will win the state but the Congress and AAP are expected to give a tough fight to the incumbent government. Manipur, a North-Eastern state that also went to the polls is likely to go the Saffron way, and N Biren Singh, the CM of the state is likely to retain power for the second time.
Goa is also looking tough for the BJP as Congress is expected to witness huge gains from the Anti-incumbency that is prevailing against the Arvind Sawant government. AAP and the All India Trinamool Congress (AITC) also fearlessly fought the battle in the elections and is likely to eat into the vote bank of the ruling BJP.
Now that the EVMs are been opened up, it is just a matter of a few hours to know who triumphs and which party has to sit in the opposition benches.
