Karnataka Congress-JDS coalition government collapses after it fails to get trust vote passed in Assembly

During the Trust Vote, the total Members present and voting were 204 and the Majority Mark was 103.

The coalition government of Janta Dal (Secular) and Congress was facing a second trust vote in little over one year after elections were held on May 2018. Various MLAs from the ruling coalition had rebelled and that’s why the trust vote was needed. After days of drama, CM Kumaraswamy finally moved the trust vote today that failed to pass in the Assembly. As a result, the Karnataka government has officially collapsed.

During the Trust Vote, the total Members present and voting were 204 and the Majority Mark was 103. The votes in favour of the Congress-JDS government were 99 and the votes against Congress-JDS government were 105.

Ordinarily, if the vote had resulted in a tie, speaker KR Ramesh Kumar would have had a casting vote if there is a ‘tie’ in the Confidence Motion.

However, the government has collapsed with a vote way over the majority mark of 103.

As a result of the Karnataka Congress-JDS government collapsing, HD Kumaraswamy will in all likeliness resign at the earliest.
