Abstract: The upcoming assembly elections in Bihar are expected to be unprecedented on several counts. Following a miserable defeat of their parties in Lok Sabha 2014 elections, two so-called arch enemies Lalu Yadav and Nitish Kumar have joined forces, after a 25-year hiatus. Despite this, there is considerable uncertainty in the air. Departing from the usual qualitative claims on who will win, this article studies numbers of previous elections to draw a judgment on the type of representation and political competition Bihar can expect to face in its elections. In some ways, it predicts the nature of the election, rather than the result.
