Further electoral districts where compromise is needed:

According to V18, there are 39 other electoral districts where there is no clear opposition leader. In other words, these are electoral districts where the parties ought to come to some sort of agreement, because support from the other party (or parties) could tip the scales in favor of a single opposition candidate. These are districts where V18 thinks the results depend on opposition coordination.
