Karnataka Election Bangalore Constituencies

(This article is about election results. The updated list of current MLAs from Bangalore can is maintained here.)

Update: On 31 May 2018, Munirathna, 49, of the Congress won the Rajarajeshwarinagar  constituency by defeating his rival Muniraju Gowda of the BJP by over 40,000 votes. The election in this constituency was held later than the 12 May 2018 polling date, when authorities discovered thousands of fake voter IDs relating to the constituency.
