Modi’s BJP Wins Majority in 2024 Elections; Set to Create Government for Third Term

India’s Election Commission announced the results of the 2024 general elections, with the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) winning 293 seats and the Indian National Congress-led INDIA bloc winning 233.

Specifically, the BJP won most of the seats for the NDA, while the Indian National Congress party only won 99 seats for the INDIA bloc. Current Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to create a government for the third term.

However, the BJP did not perform as well as the exit polls predicted, with most indicating the party would win in a landslide.

While the BJP has enough to form a government, it must now depend on other political parties in the NDA bloc and likely other non-NDA-aligned parties during the new term.
