Bengaluru, December 5: Voting for bypolls in 15 assembly constituencies of Karnataka began on Thursday morning at 7 am. Stakes are high for the ruling BJP which needs six more seats to remain in power in Karnataka. The results of these by-polls will be announced on December 9. The elections have been necessitated after the disqualification of 17 MLAs who had resigned from the assembly in July over their differences with the Congress-JD(S) coalition government. It must be noted that polling is only held in 15 out of 17 seats since the ECI had withheld the elections for two seats -- Maski and Rajarajeshwari -- as the petitions against these Assembly constituencies are pending in the Karnataka High Court. Karnataka Assembly Bypolls 2019: By-Elections in 15 Seats Tomorrow, Fate of BS Yediyurappa-Led BJP Govt Hangs in Balance.

The by-polls are believed to be very crucial for three major parties in the state- the BJP, Congress and JD(S). The BJP and Congress has fielded candidates in each of 15 seats. Moreover, there are over 100 independents also contesting in these by-polls. JD(S) is contesting on 12 seats going to by-polls today.  Karnataka Bypolls 2019: Section 144 From December 3-6, Announces Bengaluru Police.

In Karnataka, the BS Yediyurappa government has 105 MLAs in the 207-member Assembly in the state. The actual strength of the House is 224 members. The Congress-JD(S) coalition government led by former Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy had collapsed after 17 of its MLAs resigned. The resignations also reduced the majority mark in 224-strong Assembly to 104. These MLAs were then disqualified by Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar, necessitating the bypolls. The BJP with its 105 MLAs formed the government in the state. Now with by-polls on these vacant seats, the majority mark would increase.
