HDK faces floor test today; expected to sail through 25.5.2018 General News
The three-day old Congress-JD(S) coalition government in Karnataka headed by H D Kumaraswamy is facing a floor test today which it is widely expected to sail through, barring any unforeseeable events, ending the 10-day political uncertainty in the state. The election for the post of Speaker will precede the vote of confidence, with the BJP fielding its candidate S Suresh Kumar to take on senior Congress leader Ramesh Kumar. With the numbers game tilted in favour of the coalition, 58-year old Kumaraswamy looks to be sitting pretty to win the trial of strength. Kumaraswamy was sworn in as chief minister on Wednesday with a galaxy of leaders of non-BJP parties in attendance. The Congress has 78 MLAs, Kumaraswamy's JD(S) 36, and BSP 1. The alliance has also claimed support of the lone KPJP MLA and an independent. Kumaraswamy had won two seats. This is the second floor test in less than a week after BJP strongman B S Yeddyurappa had stepped down on May 19, two days after he assumed office .
