Watch Karnataka: ECI releases final polling percentages across states Today

BANGALORE: A day after polling for the Karnataka Assembly elections, the Election Commission of India (ECI) is set to  release the final polling percentages across Karnataka and individual constituencies today. As on late Wednesday, the polling percentage was nearly 73 percent, with Bangalore constituencies lagging behind the rest of the State.

All political party leaders are anxiously awaiting the announcement of the results on Saturday, May 13, especially given the range of possible outcomes suggested by exit surveys. All expect that Congress will win, but many also foresee an evenly divided Assembly.

A large number of labourers had left cities like Bengaluru and Mysuru to canvass for different parties and to vote in their home areas. Many of them are anticipated to return to the cities today to continue their jobs, though some might stay until the results are known.

Bangalore-based Mahiti Hakku Adhyayana Kendra has written to the Chief Secretary of Karnataka government about the closure of integrated finance management services portal to citizens and release of Rs.1,000 crore to contractors without uploading any information on the integrated finance management services portal . It alleges the portal has been closed to public viewing in violation of rules.

With results to be announced on Saturday May 13, all political party leaders are on tenterhooks, especially with exit polls throwing up different scenarios. While all give an edge to Congress, many also predict a hung Assembly.
