Parliamentary elections have started in India and will last until June 1

Parliamentary elections started today in India, where 968 million Indians have the right to vote, which is more than the total population of the United States, the European Union and Russia combined.

Elections for 543 members of the Lower House of Parliament will be held in seven phases until June 1 at more than one million polling stations across the country. The ballots will be counted on June 4, and the results will be announced on the same day.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's election victory seems almost certain. Seventy-three-year-old Modi is still very popular after two terms in power, during which India has increased its diplomatic power and economic standing.

A poll conducted in 2023 found Modi to be an acceptable candidate for almost 80 percent of Indians. In the 2014 and 2019 elections, he has already delivered two landslide victories to the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party.
