Telangana Assembly Elections: 2,290 Candidates in the Fray for 119 Seats

According to the state Chief Electoral Officer Vikas Raj, a total of 2,290 candidates are contesting for 119 assembly seats in the Telangana assembly elections, after 608 withdrawals on the last day for such withdrawals.

Several prominent leaders withdrew their candidacy, including Patel Ramesh Reddy, Janga Raghavareddy, Nehru Naik, and Kasula Balaraju.

The LB Nagar seat has the highest number of candidates, with 48 members contesting, followed by the Gajwel constituency, which has 44 candidates. This varied pool of candidates reflects the state’s active political scene.

The November 30 elections will be critical in defining Telangana’s political future. The Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS), formerly known as the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), emerged as the dominating group in the previous 2018 Assembly election, capturing 88 out of 119 seats and a sizable 47.4% of the total vote share. The primary opposition, Congress, received only 19 members.

The withdrawal of several candidates, including those seen as rebels, adds a fascinating dimension to the electoral dynamics. As the state prepares for elections, the outcome will influence Telangana’s political trajectory and governance in the following years. The election results, which will be announced simultaneously with four other states on December 3, will be widely monitored for their impact on the state’s political environment.
