Arunachal Pradesh Election Results 2024 Live Updates: Apart from the BJP’s massive victory, the other significant takeaway of the election is the near wipeout of the Congress, which was in power in the state till Chief Minister Pema Khandu’s exit from the party with 43 MLAs in 2016.

Arunachal Pradesh Election Results 2024 Live: The ruling BJP returned to power in Arunachal Pradesh, recording a decisive victory that saw it increase its tally from 41 to 46 in the 60-member Assembly, cementing its position as the most dominant party in the state. Though the BJP has not officially announced its decision on who will be the CM, Pema Khandu is likely to return as CM for a third term. “It is a historic moment for the BJP in Arunachal Pradesh. People have again placed their faith in the BJP…The mahaul (environment) was entirely for the BJP,” Khandu said in conversation with Liz Mathew from The Indian Express soon after the win was declared.

The saffron party enjoyed an edge in the lead up to counting day on Sunday as it already had won 10 seats uncontested including Khandu’s Mukto constituency and Deputy CM Chowna Mein’s Chowkham seat. The counting day for assembly polls in Arunachal and Sikkim was advanced from June 4 to Sunday as the term of the two assemblies are ending on June 2 and a new House has to be constituted by that day. The Assembly polls in the state took place simultaneously with the Lok Sabha polls in its first and largest phase on April 19.

A recap of 2019 results: The last election in April 2019 saw the BJP come to power with Pema Khandu as the Chief Minister. CM Khandu won unopposed from his family’s stronghold Mukto, which he had also won unopposed in the 2011 by-election after the death of his father and former CM Dorjee Khandu. He had won unopposed again in 2014. The ruling party had won both the Lok Sabha seats and 41 assembly constituencies in the 2019 polls. The JD (U) had won seven assembly seats, the NPP five, Congress four and the PPA one. Two Independent candidates had also emerged victorious.
