Guwahati, May 18: The electoral process in the states of Assam, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, along with the Union Territory of Puducherry has been completed. The results of Assembly Elections 2016 will be declared by the Election Commission tomorrow. The fates of all aspiring candidates would be revealed.

The counting of votes would begin at 8:00 AM. A total of 126 legislative seats were contested in the state of Assam. Polling was conducted in two phases. The first round of elections were held on April 4, whereas the second phase was held on April 11.

The electoral battle in Assam is a triangular contest involving the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led alliance, pitted against the Indian national Congress and All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF). The coalition led by BJP comprises of Asom Gana Parishad (AGP), Bodoland People’s Front (BPF), Rabha Jatiya Aikya Manch and Tiwa Jatiya Aikya Manch. Their chief ministerial candidate is Union Sports Minister Sarbananda Sonowal.

Meanwhile, Congress decided to move into the polls independently, without forming a pre-poll alliance with any other outfit. Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi had declared incumbent Chief minister Tarun Gogoi as the face of their campaign and their next CM candidate. Would voters repose their faith in Gogoi four the forth time? As per the exit polls, the 79-year-old veteran Congressman is out on his way from Assam. At least three surveys predict a clean majority for the saffron alliance of BJP.

The third factor in this election is the pro-Muslim outfit led by Maulana Badruddin Ajmal. Although, he was projected as the kingmaker in the opinion polls, the fresh exit poll surveys have minimized his impact. Most of them have predicted that Ajmal is likely to lose his clout in this electoral battle, winning between 6-14 seats.
