Telangana, which went to the polls for 17 Lok Sabha constituencies as part of the 2019 general elections, is eagerly awaiting the results to be announced on May 23.
The elections for Telangana's Lok Sabha seats were held on April 11 as part of the first phase of Lok Sabha elections.
Exit polls have predicted 12-14 seats for the TRS, with the BJP and the Congress getting 2 each and the MIM one. The TRS has been dominant in Telangana politics for 5 years now, and these results are not expected to show any swing away from the party, with the Congress nearly decimated (the MIM is a close ally of the TRS). The BJP is not a force in Telangana, having won just one seat of 119 in the December Assembly elections.
The trends will be clear by about 12 pm tomorrow if not earlier. The EC has made all the necessary arrangements for the counting of votes in 35 centers in 18 districts. The results for the Khammam constituency are expected to come first, and those for Nizamabad, last. The vote counting personnel and the Returning Officers will be in the centers by 5.30 am on Thursday. Every round of counting will take 25 minutes to 30 minutes.
