Chhattisgarh Assembly Election 2023

]
Voting for the Chhattisgarh assembly elections took place in two phases -- on November 7 and November 17. The counting of votes will take place on December 3. The nomination process for the first phase of the Chhattisgarh polls began on October 13. For the second phase of Chhattisgarh polls, the nomination process began on October 21. More than two crore persons -- comprising 1,01,20,380 male, 1,02,39,410 female and 790 transgenders -- are eligible to vote in the Chhattisgarh Assembly elections. There will be 24,109 polling stations in 90 Assembly constituencies, 29 of which are reserved for Scheduled Tribes and 10 for Scheduled Castes. The BJP and the Congress will be engaged in a direct fight in Chhattisgarh even as the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Aam Aadmi Party will try to make an impact on a few seats.

Chhattisgarh legislative assembly came into existence after a separate state was carved out of the state of Madhya Pradesh on November 1, 2000, with Raipur as its capital. The first legislative assembly in Chhattisgarh was formed by the MLAs elected in the 1998 Madhya Pradesh legislative assembly election whose constituencies fell in the newly formed state. Since then, the Chhattisgarh legislative assembly has witnessed four general elections - 2003, 2008, 2013, and 2018. While the first three assembly elections were won by the BJP, the Congress party registered a massive victory in the 2018 Chhattisgarh assembly elections, grabbing 68 out of 90 assembly seats. Congress later increased its tally to 71 by winning all assembly bypolls. Chhattisgarh legislative election has largely been a two-sided contest, with Janta Congress Chhattisgarh – founded by former chief minister Ajit Jogi – and Mayawati’s BSP making an impact on a few seats. In the 2018 Chhattisgarh assembly elections, Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) fought on 84 out of 90 seats but lost the security deposit in all seats.

The Election Commission of India announces the election schedule, which includes the dates for various phases of polling. The schedule is typically designed to ensure smooth conduct of the elections.
