The Congress is also expected to leave 5 seats for the Sharad Yadav faction of the Janata Dal (United) and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), in case the alliance with two parties was firmed up.

Among the 70 candidates finalized on Friday, 42 candidates will contest in first phase poll to be held on December 9, nomination process for which has already begun. JD-U is divided into two parts.
