Sitting MLC BJP’s Mahantesh Kavatgimath loses.
Chanraj Hattiholi (INC) – 3713 votes
Lakhan Jarkhiholi (IND) at second position 2400 votes
Mahantesh Kavadgimath (BJP) – votes
Results got delayed since preferential votes will come into play because of a tight contest. Any candidate securing 50 per cent of the total valid votes plus one first-preference vote will get elected in the first round itself. If that doesn’t happen, then counting will begin for second-preference votes, and then the third, and the exercise may go into a second day.
There is a triangular fight here with Mahantesh Kavadgimath (BJP), Chanraj Hattiholi (INC) and Lakhan Jarkhiholi (IND).
