South India Lok Sabha Election Results 2019 Highlights:

After a high-voltage campaign by Kerala’s leading political fronts — the CPM-led Left Democratic Front (LDF), Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) and the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) — the state voted on April 23, 2019 and recorded a turnout of 77.68 per cent. Exit polls have predicted that the Congress-led coalition would win big with up to 16 of the 20 Lok Sabha seats, and the LDF would get between four and eight seats. The UDF and LFD won 12 and eight seats respectively in the 2014 election. The BJP, which did not win a single seat in 2014, may open its account this time around.

In Tamil Nadu, a state that send 39 MPs to the Lok Sabha, the DMK is predicted to win anywhere between 25 to 35 seats. The AIADMK, which won 37 seats in the 2014 election, has been projected to win lesser seats. The state voted on April 18, 2019 and recorded a turnout of nearly 72 per cent.

In Telangana, Chandrababu Naidu’s TRS is projected to make a sweeping return. In Andhra, the fight seems to be between N Chandrababu Naidu’s TDP and the YSRCP. Both states voted on April 11, 2019. Telangana recorded a turnout of 62.7 per cent, and Andhra 78.1 per cent.

In Karnataka, which recorded a 68.55 per cent voter turnout, the BJP is projected to win 21 of the 28 seats. Differences between the JD(S) and the Congress, which cobbled up an alliance to form a coalition in the state, may have helped the BJP gain some ground.
