Assembly Election Results 2018 LIVE updates: The results from the counting will decided the fate of 8,472 candidates who are in the fray.

The assembly election results of five states - Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Telangana and Mizoram will be declared today. After nearly a month-long voting process, the counting of votes began today at 8am. The results from the counting will decide the fate of 8,472 candidates who are in the fray.

The Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are in direct contest in three states - Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan. In Rajasthan, the Congress is banking on anti-incumbency against incumbent chief minister Vasundhara Raje to form its government. The Congress is banking on former chief minister Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot to swing the state in its favour.

After being out of power for the last 15 years in Madhya Pradesh, the Congress is hoping to make a comeback to its erstwhile bastion Madhya Pradesh and instal its own government. The contest will be a test of the work done by incumbent chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

In Chhattisgarh, Janata Congress Chhattisgarh (JCC) chief and former chief minister Ajit Jogi is hoping to return to power and has teamed up with BSP supremo Mayawati to dethrone the BJP and its incumbent chief minister Raman Singh in the state.

In Telangana, K Chandrashekar Rao of the Telangan Rashtra Samiti (TRS) is banking on his gamble to call an early election in the state to return to power despite the best efforts of the Congress-led Grand Alliance of Praja Kutami, which includes other parties such as the Telugu Desam Party led by Chandrababu Naidu and others.

The Congress was hoping to hold on to power in the northeastern state of Mizoram, one of the last few states that it governs.

The exit polls declared on December 7, immediately after voting concluded in Rajasthan and Telangana, predicted a close fight for the Congress and BJP in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattigarh. The K Chandrashekar Rao-led TRS has been predicted to get a clear majority in Telangana. The same exit polls have given the Congress an advantage in Rajasthan and have predicted a hung assembly in Mizoram. Source : ht
