BJP announces candidates for Karnataka MLC elections

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday announced its candidates for the biennial election to seven seats of the Karnataka Legislative Council, to be elected by the members of Legislative Assembly (MLAs).

Former chief minister and senior leader BJP leader BS Yediyurappa’s son, BY Vijayendra, who is the present state vice president of the party, has been denied an MLC ticket by the ruling party.

This comes as a setback for BY Vijayendra, as he is the vice president of the BJP state unit and was earlier rumoured to be picked up as a candidate for the MLC elections.

The BJP will now look to win four of the seven seats of the Legislative Council for which Members of Legislative Assembly (MLAs) will elect the members. Meanwhile, senior leader Basavaraj Horatti, who recently jumped ship from Janata Dal (Secular) JD(S) to BJP, will be the party’s candidate for the Karnataka West Teacher’s constituency election, which is set to take place on June 13.

The last date of submissions of filing nominations is Tuesday for seven vacant seats in the Council. The election will be held on June 3. The election was necessitated as the term of office of seven members is going to expire on June 14.
