After the Janata Dal (S) lost the assembly elections, CM Ibrahim, the party’s state president, resigned on May 24. Ibrahim told the media that former prime minister H.D. Deve Gowda had scheduled a meeting of party leaders for this Wednesday to announce his decision. “I took moral responsibility a day after the announcement of the results of the elections in Karnataka. Today I have submitted the resignation from my post,” Ibrahim explained.

CM Ibrahim informed the newly elected Congress government of his demands. When questioned whether he could have become a minister today if he had not left Congress before the elections, he adamantly refused to accept any positions that lacked respect. “I care about self-respect,” he said. He added, “They could have made U.T. Khader deputy chief minister. But now he can’t even open his mouth.”

CM Ibrahim left the Congress in 2022 after having disagreements with the chief minister at the time, Siddaramaiah. The JD (S) put forth 148 candidates for the assembly elections in the hopes that it would act as a kingmaker after the results were in. After the elections, former chief minister H.D. Kumaraswamy said the national parties would have to come to him. However, Congress easily passed it with a large majority.

Only 19 seats were won by the JD (S), and it was beaten there. By positioning D.K. Shivakumar as one of the candidates for the position of CM, Congress was able to win the support of the Vokkaliga. Nikhil Kumaraswamy, son of H.D. Kumaraswamy, suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of the Congress candidate in Ramnagar.
