Karnataka General Election 2024: Karnataka By-election

A by-election for the Surpur (Shorapur) constituency in the Yadgir district is also scheduled at the same time as the general election in Karnataka.

It is due to the death of Congress leader and MLA Raja Venkatappa Naik in February 2024. While the Congress has nominated his son Raja Venugopal Naik for the seat, the BJP has nominated Narasimha Nayak, also known as Raju Gowda.

May 7 will be the date of the poll.

Karnataka has two major contesting alliances: the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and the Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA).

There are 25 candidates from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the NDA, while 3 candidates come from the Janata Dal (Secular) party [JD(S)].

The 28 candidates representing the INDIA bloc are all members of the Indian National Congress (INC).

Approximately 6.11 crore citizens live in Karnataka, according to the 2011 census.

The Bharatiya Janata Party won 25 of the 28 seats in Karnataka in the previous Lok Sabha election.

The INC and JD(S) each won one of the remaining two seats in the 17th Lok Sabha (2019), including Sumalatha, who was a member of the NDA and now belongs to the BJP.
