Bengaluru, May 19, 2018 : Janata Dal (Secular) leader HD Kumaraswamy is likely to take oath as Karnataka’s new chief minister at 12.30pm on Monday after BJP leader BS Yeddyurappa resigned two days after taking charge of the state’s top political post.



Kumaraswamy faces a delicate balancing act in allocating portfolios in his coalition government, with some key posts likely to go to post poll ally Congress.

People familiar with the matter said Congress leader G Parameshwara is likely to become the deputy chief minister and home minister. Kumaraswamy is likely to keep the finance portfolio with himself.

According to these people, most portfolios in Kumaraswamy’s council of ministers have been decided, though they added that this list could eventually change.
