Gujarat Assembly Elections 2012

Sixty out of the 182 seats have been redrawn in Gujarat this year and fates of the two main parties, the BJP and Congress, are likely to be affected by the delimitation process.

The BJP has been in power for 17 years in the state and this year will mark the third successive occasion when the party will go to the election under the leadership of Narendra Modi. The Opposition, Congress, has not projected any chief ministerial candidate. It is led in the state assembly by Shaktisinh Gohil.

Another major player in this year's election is the Gujarat Parivartan Party led by former BJP leader and Chief Minister Keshubhai Patel. His party is expected to give the ruling party a tough time, particularly in the Saurashtra region. One of the big challenges of Narendra Modi this time will be to ensure the support of the Leuva Patel community.

The Gujarat election this year is projected as the semi-final before the mega final of 2014, the Lok Sabha elections.
