With the two trailing parties, Congress and JD (S) coming together in the hope of forming the next government in Karnataka, the BJP has opposed the move and wants to stake claim to form the government.

With no party reaching the halfway mark, the ball is now in the court of Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Rudabhai Vala. The Governor can exercise general order of preference to call a party or a group of parties willing to work together to form the government.

Here are the Governor's best options:

  1. Call a coalition of political parties which have formed a pre-poll alliance to for the government 

  2. Call the single largest party that stakes a claim to form the government with the support of other political parties and independent candidates

  3. Call a coalition of parties formed post-election if all allies unanimously express intention to join hands and form a government 

  4. Call a coalition of parties formed post-election where some allies express interest in joining the government while others will only support from outside the government. 

  5. Call a coalition of parties that was formed after the election, but only a few allies join the government and the rest promising to provide support from outside.

    As there is no pre- poll alliance between any groups the sudden claim to form the the govt by them need not be accepted first. Call the largest party and see whether they can form a govt.If they fail the chance goes to the newly formed alliance
