All eyes on Raj Bhawan, as Karnataka voters pronounce hung verdict

All eyes are on the Raj Bhawan in Bengaluru, as none of the political parties got majority in the assembly elections held in 222 seats of 224 seats on May 12 in Karnataka.

BJP has emerged as the single largest party with 104 seats under its belt, the Congress with 78 and JD(S) 38.

The governor Vajubhai R Vala is likely to invite one of the parties to form the government later Wednesday. Conventionally the governor calls upon the single largest party or a pre-poll alliance to form the government. But there are many instances, Goa and Manipur being the most recent, where a post-poll alliance has been invited to form the government.
