Uttar Pradesh Assembly Polls 2017



The 17th Assembly Election in Uttar Pradesh will be held from February 11 to March 8 2017 in seven phases. Counting of votes will take place on March 11, 2017. In the last Assembly election in 2012, the Samajwadi Party won majority by securing 224 seats and it formed government under the leadership of Akhilesh Yadav.
The Uttar Pradesh legislative assembly comprises 403 assembly seats.The Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party are the two main political contenders in Uttar Pradesh. Besides, national political parties BJP and Congress also have important stakes in this politically significant state. As the largest state in India in terms of population, Uttar Pradesh returns the largest number of seats to the Lok Sabha.

In the run-up to 2017 elections, chief minister Akhilesh Yadav faces the tough task of fending opposition both within and outside the ruling Samajwadi Party and convincing voters to give them another chance. Trying her best to ensure that this doesn't work, main opposition leader Mayawati and her Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) have started preparations for a fight to the finish. Giving these two regional heavyweights a tough fight will be the national party BJP which is in power at the Centre. The Congress is also hoping to revive its fortunes in the forthcoming Assembly elections. Opinion polls, though divided on the likely outcome of the polls, suggest that the BJP has a slight edge at the moment.
