In May 2018, after the 12 years, the Karnataka assembly result gave a hung assembly.  After result, JD(S) chose Congress as its partner as they were CM chair by the Congress. Congress MLA Dr G Parameshwar became Dy Chief Minister along with the charge of Home Ministry. 
The swearing in was attended by all opposition party leaders like Sonia Gandhi, Mamta Banerjee, Akhilesh Yadav to name a few. 

JD(s) fought 2018 Assembly election keeping campaign Vokkaliga pride as their Central theme.  Old Mysore Belt  was popularly called as Vokkaliga belt, as it voted heavily in  favour of JD(s). Out of 38 mlas of JD(S) 33 mlas came from OMR. JD(s) knew this is there chance to expand the party beyond there strong hold if they hold power.

After HD Kumaraswamy became CM, JD(s) appointed H.Vishwanath as state President. Since then BJP tried operation lotus 3 times in state however failed everytime.

In Lok Sabha 2019 election, as per the pre-poll arrangement JD(s) contested on 9 seats, Congress fought on 19 seats. CM H.D.Kumarswamy's son contested from Mandya which gave 8 MLA's to JD(s). He was against BJP supported Independent Sumalatha Ambarish. JD(s) lost its strong hold with the defeat of Nikhil Kumaraswamy, HD Kumaraswamy's son. Even JD(S) supremo H.D.Devegowda lost fromTumkuru Lok Sabha seat.

LokSabha results confirmed that section of core votes of JD(s) was transferred to BJP in old Mysore region. BJP won Chickaballapur, Kolar, Chamrajnagar convincingly. 

After Lok Sabha election it was known that the govt days were numbered. The govt finally fell on July 23.

Importance of By-election for JD(s)

Election to 15 vacant assembly seats took place on 5th December. Tomorrow results of the by-election will be annouced. BJP needs to win minimum of 6 Assembly seats. Three of the JD(s) MLAs had resigned along with 15 Congress MLAs. However, JD(s) did not campaign enough in any of the 3 seats. Rumours suggest that few of the JD(s) MLAs are already in contact with BJP. If BJP manages to win above 10 seats including the 3 of the JD(s) seats it will be proved that JD(s) is weakened even in its strong hold areas.
