Lok Sabha 2019 election results

The May 2023 Karnataka assembly elections saw the defeat of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the coming back of the Congress to the power with majority after 10 years. However, the state has often showed that it votes differently when it comes to general elections, with majority favouring the BJP.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP won 25 of the 28 seats, while the Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) had to pacify themselves with only one seat each. One independent, backed by the BJP, managed to secure one seat.
