The Madhya Pradesh assembly elections are slated to take place later this year, and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has already announced its initial list of candidates for the state in the preceding month. Madhya Pradesh is one of five states where assembly elections will be held this year, with the BJP currently in power.
In the 2018 Madhya Pradesh assembly elections, the Congress emerged as the largest single party with 114 seats, while the BJP secured 109 seats. However, in 2020, the Congress government lost its majority due to the resignations of several MLAs. Subsequently, the BJP formed the government in the state, and Shivraj Singh Chouhan was reinstated as Chief Minister.
