Tripura election result 2018 news updates: Exit poll results of the three states were declared today by survey agencies after the end of polling in Meghalaya and Nagaland on 27 February. Polling in Tripura, which is considered to be a Left bastion, took place on 18 February after a high-octane campaign by leaders of BJP and the ruling CPI(M).

According to the Election Commission, 74% voting took place in the state, which was way below 91.82 percent in 2013 assembly polls and 84 percent in 2014 General elections. For the first time, Tripura election was a direct contest between the BJP and CPI(M). Tripura has 2.57 million voters.

Earlier opinion polls had predicted a BJP win in the state. The News X-Jan Ki Baat opinion poll had said the BJP-IPFT coalition in Tripura was likely to win 31-37 seats out of the total 60 assembly constituencies in the state. The survey also predicted that the ruling CPI(M) may get 23-29 seats and the Congress may not win any seat in the state.

Earlier, the Election Commission of India had banned the release of exit polls from 18 February until 4.30 pm today.
