In 2018 assembly election, the BJP won the highest number of seats (104 out of 224) but fell short of a majority. The Congress won 80 seats, and the JD(S) won 37 seats. However, after the election, Congress and JD(S) formed a coalition government, with HD Kumaraswamy of JD(S) taking oath as the chief minister. Thus, despite winning the most seats, the BJP was unable to form the government in Karnataka.
Later BJP formed the government with the help of some Congress and JD(S) legislators who switched their sides.
