About our 2024 Indian General Election news

Latest news on the 2024 Indian general election, the world's largest democratic exercise, with over 900 million eligible voters. Coverage includes updates on voting dates, opinion polls, campaigns by PM Narendra Modi's BJP, Rahul Gandhi's Congress, and key opposition parties.

India is gearing up for its 18th general election, which will be held in seven phases from 19 April to 1 June 2024, to elect the 543 members of the Lok Sabha, the lower house of Parliament. The results will be declared on June 4, determining the composition of the central government for the next five years.

The election is expected to be a heated battle between the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is seeking a third consecutive term, and the opposition Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA), a newly-formed coalition of parties including the Indian National Congress. Key campaign issues include unemployment, inflation, corruption allegations, and the Ram Mandir consecration.

As the world's largest democracy prepares to vote, the election has captured global attention. The BJP has invited foreign diplomats and political parties to observe its campaign, while the opposition has accused the government of misusing central agencies to target its leaders. The Election Commission of India is tasked with ensuring a free and fair election, with a massive deployment of security forces and election workers across the country.

The 2024 Indian general election is steeped in the country's rich democratic history, with past elections witnessing iconic leaders, watershed moments, and dramatic shifts in political power. As the campaign intensifies in the coming weeks, the election promises to be a defining moment for India's future, with far-reaching implications for its economy, society, and role on the global stage.
