Rajya Sabha Election 2022 Live Updates: Voting was held on 16 Rajya Sabha seats across four states- Rajasthan, Haryana, Maharashtra, Karnataka on Friday. 

In Rajasthan, the Congress won three Rajya Sabha seats while the BJP could only win one. In Karnataka, the BJP won all the three seats it contested in while the Congress managed to win only one of the two seats to which it had fielded its candidates.

Counting was on hold in Haryana and Maharashtra and Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said on Friday that a BJP delegation met the Election Commission and asked that the elections in these two states should be declared null and void. 

However, counting began in Haryana early Saturday after the EC rejected the BJP's complaint seeking cancellation of votes of 2 Congress MLAs in the state.

The BJP's Krishan Lal Panwar and Independent candidate Kartikeya Sharma, backed by the saffron party , have won the two Rajya Sabha seats from Haryana.

In Maharashtra, where counting started too for the six seats, the BJP and the ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) won three each.

    Why is voting required?

    Every Lok Sabha MP is elected through voting, but all Rajya Sabha MPs are not elected through voting.

    In fact, most Rajya Sabha lawmakers get elected without contest. Usually, political parties field a number of candidates as per their strength, and as a result, the number of candidates will be equal to the number of vacancies. In this round of elections, several candidates have already won unopposed.

    However, when a party has a significant number of extra votes and can woo away some opposition MLAs to get an extra seat, it puts up an additional candidate, triggering a contest as we are witnessing in these aforementioned four states. For the 16 vacant seats in these four states, there are 20 candidates in fray. Read More
