MP Election 2023: In the lead-up to the Madhya Pradesh state assembly elections, both the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress are leaving no stone unturned to win the hearts of the voters. The political landscape is abuzz with parties making grand promises and putting forth their best candidates. The BJP recently announced the names of 79 candidates, including three central ministers and seven MPs, although the Congress has yet to reveal its list of candidates. With uncertainty looming over the number of seats each party will secure and the formation of the government, discussions among the public are rife.
The latest survey conducted by a news channel has thrown up some surprising results. If the assembly elections were held in October, the ruling BJP is projected to win between 102 and 110 seats, while the main opposition party, the Congress, is expected to secure between 118 and 128 seats. Other smaller parties are anticipated to win only between 3 and 7 seats.
It’s worth noting that in the 2018 assembly elections, the BJP suffered a setback, winning 109 seats, a loss of 56 seats compared to the previous elections. Meanwhile, the Congress secured 114 seats. According to the survey, both the BJP and the Congress are estimated to receive 42% of the vote share each.
