The term of the 230-seat Madhya Pradesh Assembly will end on January 7, 2019. It is a battle between the Congress and the ruling BJP. While Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan is looking at a fourth term in the state, it remains to be seen who emerges as the CM candidate for the Congress - Kamal Nath or Jyotiraditya Scindia. However, the BSP and AAP have also decided to contest all 230 seats in the state.
Opinion polls earlier this year have indicated a victory for the Congress in the state even as the BJP has said that it is confident of winning the MP Assembly Polls.
