Karnataka is a state in South India, and with the IT capital of India in its center, Karnataka packs a powerful punch for the election. Karnataka elections have ganerally seen a three-way contest between The Congress, BJP and the Janata Dal (S). BJP has been strengthening its base ever since it won its first election in the South in 2004. It first formed the State Government of Karnataka in allaince with the Janata Dal (S), but subsequent withdrawl of support by JD (S) in 2007 and re-elections in 2008, saw BJP emerging even stronger.

This year, BJP is fighting the elctions on the stability plank. Congress is trying to recover from the loss of defecting candidates, most of whom went to BJP while JD (S) is back to its secular plank and is fighting the Karnataka Election with the Left parties as a part of third front. JD (S) president, H.D. Deve Gowda believes of a strong peasant support base in rural south Karnataka and is expecting to do well there.

Karanataka will see a list of some BIG names contesting this time: from former Prime Minister, H D Deve Gowda, to 4 former Chief Ministers including S Bangarappa, to a Union Level Minister, M H Ambareesh to 16 sitting MPs. A total of 427 candidates will contest from 28 constituencies, with the largest number of candidates, 37, from Bangalore Central. The first phase of Karnataka elections on 23rd April will see 271 candidates contesting from 17 constituencies.

Karnataka elections 2009 will have a unique distinction of having the maximum number of crorepati candidates in fray, as compared to the national average. There will be 45 crorepatis contesting the elections, which makes it a total of 24.9 % as compared to the 14 % national average. The top five crorepati candidates from the state are Surendra Babu (108 cr) (JD-S), Captain G R Gopinath (Independent), C Aswathanarayanayana (BJP), H D Kumaraswamy (JD-S) and A S Channabasappa (BJP).

Constituencies in Karnataka go to poll on 23rd and 30th April '2009.
