The results for the Gujarat assembly elections will be declared today. The vote counting will begin at 8 am at 37 centres. The elections to the 182-member assembly, held on December 1 and 5, recorded a voters’ turnout of 66.38 per cent. The BJP is eyeing a seventh straight term in Gujarat while the Congress hopes to remain the main Opposition party. Arvind Kejriwal’s AAP is seeking to emerge as the main challenger to the BJP in the state.

Exit polls have predicted a landslide victory for the BJP, but such predictions often go wrong. In 2017, BJP had won 99 seats and Congress 77.

The key candidates in the contest were Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel, AAP’s Chief Ministerial candidate Isudan Gadhvi, cricketer Ravindra Jadeja’s wife Rivaba Jadeja, and young leaders like Hardik Patel, Alpesh Thakor, and Jignesh Mevani.
