BJP-led NDA Wins a Majority, Set for the 3rd Term of Modi Government

The Election Commission of India declared the results of the 543 seats’ elections this morning, following a protracted procedure. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will have to rely on its allies to create the next government as the party failed to secure the magic number that would have given it a solo majority in the Lok Sabha.

The NDA parties will meet today in New Delhi as the BJP, which only secured 240 seats overall and fell short of the 272 majority needed to win the majority. When the allies’ seats are added together, the NDA enjoys a sizable majority. The Indian National Developmental, Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) bloc did not have any members that went beyond the majority threshold at the same moment. The alliance, which won more than 200 seats, will also convene today to decide on its course of action.

Meanwhile, N. Chandrababu Naidu’s Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal (United), with 28 seats apiece, control the balance of power in the BJP-led NDA. Both parties have reaffirmed their commitment to the NDA and said they will be in attendance at the alliance conference.

The outcome of the two Assembly elections in Andhra Pradesh and Odisha resulted in the removal of the current administration. Naveen Patnaik’s 24-year government came to an end as the BJP won handily in Odisha, while Jagan Mohan Reddy’s YSR Congress Party was soundly defeated by Chandrababu Naidu’s Telugu Desam Party in Andhra Pradesh.
