The three-phase Bihar Assembly Election 2020 was the first election to have been held amid the Covid-19 pandemic which, however, could not thwart voters. According to Election Commission data, the overall turnout this year was 57.05 per cent, marginally higher than that of 2015’s 56.66 per cent.

 The term of the 243-member assembly will come to an end on November 29. In the first phase of the election on October 28, 71 seats spread across 16 districts went to polls, while in the second phase, voters in 94 seats of 17 districts exercised their franchise on November 3, and in the third phase, 78 seats spread in 15 districts went to polls on November 7.

The results could mark a watershed in 31-year-old son of Lalu Prasad Yadav, Tejashwi Yadav’s career as a year ago in Lok Sabha election 2019; Rashtriya Janata Dal did not win a single seat. The NDA has won 39 of the 40 seats and one had gone to the Congress.
