BBMP election results today

The results of the BBMP elections held on Saturday will be announced on Tuesday, deciding the fate of 1,120 candidates.

The counting of votes in all the 197 wards is likely to be completed by 1 pm. The electronic voting machines will be unlocked at 8 am. The BBMP is working to provide real time information at the Palike headquarters. BBMP Commissioner G Kumar Naik said counting will start in all the 27 centres, Assembly-segment wise, at 8 am.

The results will be immediately fed into the Palike’s website, which will be accessible only to the officials. The same information will be flashed on a display board at the Palike head office.

The BBMP, however, is not very sure of putting up the results on its specially created website bbmp-election as it was still running trials on Monday, said Assistant Commissioner (Elections) Mallikarjun.  The State Election Commission will display the results only after it is obtained from the BBMP.

Once the results are announced and gazetted, the regional commissioner will invite the single-largest party to hold the reins. The process has to be concluded within a month after the results are declared.

In the first meeting of the council, the mayor, deputy mayor and chairpersons of 12 standing committees have to be elected. The two national parties — BJP and Congress — have to win a minimum of 100 seats of the total 198 wards to have their mayor and deputy mayor.
