Shivaji Nagar Bypoll Results 2019 Live Updates: Congress Registers Victory from Shivaji Nagar Seat in Close Poll Battle
Check who won and who lost, who is leading, who is trailing and who will be the new Shivaji Nagar MLA (ಶಿವಾಜಿ ನಗರ​).

162. Shivajinagar (General) (ಶಿವಾಜಿ ನಗರ​) , also known as Shivaji Nagar, is a State Assembly/Vidhana Soudha constituency in the Bengaluru Urban district and Bengaluru region of Karnataka (ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ) and is a part of the Bangalore central Parliamentary/Lok Sabha constituency. Congress (INC) won the seat in the 2018 Karnataka Assembly elections.

INC won this seat in the 2008 Assembly Elections with a margin of 10,396 votes (12.94%) registering 53.53% of the votes polled.

Bye-elections for 15 of the 17 vacant seats in the Karnataka Assembly were held on December 5, 2019 and the votes are being counted on December 8, 2019.
