Voting will take place in phases over a period of 44 days and will end on June 1, after which the votes will be counted.

The world’s largest voting for elections to the lower house of parliament (Lok Sabha) began in India, where about 970 million voters could take part – this is more than 10% of the world’s population. The AP reported it.

The poll will last for six weeks. On Friday, April 19, elections began in 21 of the 29 states, from the Himalayan mountains to the tropical Andaman Islands.

Voting will take place in stages over 44 days in all states and territories, ending on June 1, followed by counting of votes. On June 4, the results will be announced, according to which the parties participating in the race will divide among themselves the 543 seats in the lower house of parliament.

These elections are considered one of the most important in the history of modern India, as their results will test the limits of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s political dominance. If his party wins, he will become the second leader of India after Jawaharlal Nehru to stay in power for a third term.

Most polls predict victory for Modi and his Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party, which faces a broad opposition alliance called INDIA with more than 20 parties led by the Indian National Congress and powerful forces political in the region.

Modi and his party consolidated power for a decade through a combination of Hindu politics and economic development. Their main assets are popular social welfare programs, which the government says have improved access to clean toilets, health care and cooking gas, and provided free grain to the poor.

During the election campaign, Modi hardened his Hindu nationalist rhetoric. He promises to make India a developed country by 2047, when it celebrates 100 years of independence.

Let us recall that the previous Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said that India is changing its attitude towards the Russian Federation’s all-out war against Ukraine.
