Aam Aadmi Party Might Be Key Opponent In Goa Elections 2022

Between February 10 and March 7, five states — Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Goa, and Manipur will hold seven-phase elections. The declarations by the Chief Election Commissioner to this effect have set the stage for a heated campaign. It will undoubtedly affect the status and morale of key players in the run-up to the 2024 elections.

AAP Might Be  A Key Party In Goa 

Here, the talking points would revolve around the states of Punjab and Goa and Uttarakhand where there is a possibility of a reversal in polling equations. However, Aam Aadmi Party election news has drawn most of the attention of political analysts.

Goa

While the BJP is expected to win 18-22 seats in the 40-seat Goa Assembly, the AAP may emerge as the state’s main opposition force with 7-11 seats. With 4-6 members, the Congress may be contented with the 3rd spot. Goa elections may present a tough fight between Congress and AAP for the 2nd position. However, the equations may alter if there is an alliance between these political outfits.

Punjab

A pre-poll survey predicts that, with the prospects high for all political parties in Punjab elections, the AAP may not boost their much-hyped propaganda. They may not touch the magic figure of the absolute majority despite being declared the single largest party. The sitting Congress party may come in second. The Bharatiya Janata Party, on the other hand, who has allied with Captain Amarinder Singh’s PLC, is unlikely to succeed. The AAP is likely to win 50-55 seats, while the ruling Congress party may garner 40-45 seats. In the 117-seat legislative assembly, the halfway mark is 58.

The SAD-led alliance is expected to win a maximum of 15 seats, while the BJP-PLC combination is supposed to win 2 seats. Still, it will be a morale booster for AAP, which bagged 20 seats in the 2017 Assembly elections.

Uttarakhand 

The BJP is expected to retain power in Uttarakhand with a clear majority of 42-48 seats in the 70-seat Assembly, whereas the Congress party is likely to come in second with 12-16 seats. Here, AAP may not make a distinct impact. They may occupy between 4 and 7 seats.

Besides, Uttar Pradesh and Manipur are also going to the polls on the same schedule. In Manipur, the N.B. Singh-led NDA alliance may dominate the election outcome. As regards Uttar Pradesh, considerable permutations and combinations are going on amongst big political outfits to derail the ruling party (BJP).

The Legislative assembly elections 2022 may signify a major political turnaround in the next Lok Sabha polls. The general election to elect members of the 18th Lok Sabha is scheduled to take place in or around May 2024.
