Election Results 2023 The results of the assembly elections in Tripura, Meghalaya, and Nagaland are being counted today after an intense campaigning period. The Bharatiya Janata Party is hoping to consolidate its position in Tripura, which is expected to have a greater impact on the national stage compared to Meghalaya and Nagaland. Despite being a stronghold of the Left, the BJP is predicted to emerge victorious in Tripura according to most exit polls.
As the initial trends start to trickle in, the Bharatiya Janata Party seems to be leading the race in Tripura. However, the Left and its ally Congress have made a strong start as well. After the first round of counting, Chief Minister Manik Saha is currently ahead in the Town Bordowali constituency.
Out of the three states, Tripura holds greater national significance as it marks the first time that traditional rivals Congress and the Left have joined forces to contest the state’s 60-member assembly election and challenge the Bharatiya Janata Party. This alliance has added a new dimension to the electoral landscape and has increased the stakes for all parties involved.
