Karnataka Legislative Council Chairman Election on Dec 12--Pro-tem Chairman Basavaraj Horatti of JDS is in forefront

Bengaluru, Dec 8(UNI) The Congress party which has majority on its own in the Legislative Council with 38 members, is likely to concede the Chairman’s post of the Upper House to its new-found political ally JD(S) for which election is slated for December 12.
Mr Basavaraj Horatti, senior JD(S) member in the upper house, who is also Pro-term Chairman told UNI that “I have been directed by the Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy to file my nomination for the post".
Pleading ignorance about the support guaranteed by the Congress party for him to the post, the pro-tem Chairman said that “I am not aware of it, however I am filing the nomination as directed by the Chief Minister".
While forming the coalition government, after BJP, despite emerging as single largest party, failed to prove majority, the Congress and JD(S) came to understanding that to give Assembly Speaker post to the Congress and Upper House Chairman post to.
However, since Congress has a clear majority with 38 members in the 75 member house, some of the Council members reportedly not in favor to leave the Chairman post to the JD(S) and pressing the party’s senior leaders not to concede.
While Senior Congress leaders remained tight lipped over the issue, JD(S) leaders are confidant of receiving support from the Congress during the election.
In the 75-member House, with two vacancy, the Congress has a strength of 38 members, BJP 18, the JD(S) 14, independents two, and the Congress can easily get the post on its own if it chose to field its candidate to the Chairman’s post.
With the Congress party’s central leaders are reluctant not to ruffle the feather of the Coalition government, which was formed to keep the BJP at bay from the office, are unlikely to field its candidate to the post and send a strong signal that both the coalition partners are working in tandem to frustrate the arch rival BJP from achieving any political gain.
