With the entry of the AAP into the Uttarakhand election arena, the polls will be a triangular battle between the ruling BJP, the Congress, and the AAP.

In the 2017 Uttarakhand elections, the BJP won 56 Assembly seats while the Congress won 11. The AAP has stated that it would run for all 70 Assembly seats in Uttarakhand. It should be mentioned that, despite receiving a strong mandate in the recent Assembly elections in Uttarakhand, the ruling saffron party has had three chief ministers in less than five years.
