With hours till the final results of the Karnataka Assembly elections are announced, JD(S) leader HD Kumaraswamy stated on Saturday that he has not yet been called for the formation of the government in the event of a cliffhanger, adding that he is hoping for a good show.

The counting for the Assembly elections is slated to begin at 8 a.m., deciding the destiny of 2,615 candidates from various parties.

Speaking to the media ahead of the counting, Kumaraswamy cited exit polls that predicted nearly 30-32 seats for the JD(S) and a clear advantage for the Congress party, with some even predicting a majority for the grand old party, and said that there is no need for him to consider other options.

“In the next 2-3 hours, it will become clear. Exit polls show that the two national parties will score in a big way. The polls have given 30-32 seats to JD(S). I am a small party, there is no demand for me…I am hoping for a good development,” he said.

“No one has contacted me till now. Let us see the final results first. According to the exit polls, there is no need for options. Let us see,” the JD(S) leader added.
