Bihar Assembly Election 2020 results will be announced on November 7. The polls were held in three phases on October 28, November 3, and November 7. The term of the 243-member Bihar Legislative Assembly comes to an end on November 29. Of the total strength, 38 seats are reserved for SCs and two for STs.

The Election Commission has made elaborate arrangements for counting, by setting up 55 counting centers in 38 districts across Bihar, with 414 counting halls set up.

Three counting centers each have been set up in four districts of East Champaran (which has 12 assembly constituencies), Gaya (10 seats), Siwan (eight constituencies), and Begusarai (seven constituencies). In the state capital Patna, votes for all the 14 Assembly constituencies will be counted at just one center set up at AN College. The poll panel said it is readying 30 counting halls at the college.

Prohibitory orders under Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) have been imposed in and around the counting centres to prevent the gathering of people. Majority exit polls released after the third and final round of polls suggest that Tejashwi Yadav-led Mahagathbandhan might have an edge over the NDA.

Despite the coronavirus pandemic, Bihar saw a considerable voter turnout, with Phase 1 recording 54% polling marginally lower than 54.75% for the same seats in 2015 elections. Similarly, Phase 2 witnessed 55.7% voter turnout as compared to 56.17% recorded last time. A voter turnout of 56.02% was recorded for the third and final phase of the Bihar Assembly elections.

Stay tuned for all the updates.

Bihar Elections 2020: How will the LJP factor play out in the polls

This will be an election in which a political party will be discussed more for the seats it made another party lose than how many it won. LJP president Chirag Paswan’s self-declared one-point agenda was to ensure the defeat of the JD(U), while at the same time underlining that he remained a friendly opponent of the BJP. The mixed message left the core BJP voters, especially upper castes, confused. Most of the about 13% upper caste voters are considered an NDA constituency.

Paswan’s remarks also added to the distrust between JD(U) and BJP cadre at the same time as Tejashwi’s rallied behind him even more aggressively and vocally. JD(U) insiders admit the LJP could end up hurting them on at least 35 seats. The BJP appeared to have realised rather late that the LJP might prove an “unguided missile”. However, the party’s effort to dispel the notion that it had propped Chirag up remained half-hearted. PM Narendra Modi, who has no love lost for Nitish, for one, did not disown Chirag completely.
