Indian Prime Minister Modi eins a third term

Story by ZBC Reporter

INDIAN Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to be sworn-in for a third term on the 8th of this month after key allies pledged their continued support even though his BJP party failed to get at least 272 seats in parliament to form a government.

Modi’s BJP, his allies TDP, and JDU secured 293 seats above the 272-mark needed to form a government.

The TDP and JDU joined Mr Modi’s bloc a few months before the elections.

The opposition coalition, Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance, has performed far better than expected, securing 232 seats.

It has not accepted defeat and is expected to meet this Wednesday to map the way forward.

Modi is, however, pleased with his party after getting their first parliamentary seat in the southern state of Kerala, where their candidate Actor Suresh Gopi won by a margin of more than 74 thousand votes.

The world’s biggest election was held in seven phases over six weeks, with almost a billion people registered to vote.
