The Congress and the JD(S) had formed the government in 2018 May, with alliance, as no parties got clear majority, and the Opposition BJP had emerged as the single largest party by bagging 106 seats in the 224-member Karnataka Assembly.

Both the Congress and the JD(S) parties, leaving aside their rivalries had come together for the first time in Karnataka and the JD(S) which had won only 37 Assembly seats had formed the Government with the Congress, which had secured 80 seats in the Assembly elections.
