Final results were expected late Tuesday, but the results of the world's biggest democratic election seemed clear. Modi would keep his job, but with a smaller mandate than his party had widely expected Or promised.

For the first time, in more than a decade, a giant of Indian politics will be forced to form a coalition government with smaller, albeit smaller, coalition parties.

The final results were expected to maintain the balance revealed by the preliminary ballot count, which showed the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) winning 543 seats in the Lok Sabha, the lower house of the Indian Parliament. Seats are won. 295 seats won.

That would push the NDA closer to the 272-seat threshold needed to form a new government and would almost certainly see Modi advance as prime minister - but a fraction of the vote. The BJP promised with the slogan "Abki Baar 400". paar, or "will cross 400 this time."

BJP alone did not muster the votes to form a third-party government under its leader.

This is a far smaller majority than most exit polls predicted for the NDA, which predicted a 350-seat victory for the grand alliance.

More than 643 million people - out of nearly a billion eligible voters - went to the polls during India's massive seven-phase elections. It was organized on six questions and was marked by a bitter campaign fought on religious and communal lines. Voting also took place during a severe heat wave that has been blamed for the deaths of nearly 80 people across the country, including at least 10 polling officials.

Overall, the NDA alliance looks set to lose more than 60 seats compared to its performance in the last general election five years ago, and the rival Bharatiya Janata Party (Indian National Development Inclusive Alliance), led by the opposition Congress. has been Celebrating, looking ready. Get more than 100 new seats. This would give India a total of over 230 seats – at a time when it had been written off by many political pundits and pollsters.

Still, speaking at BJP headquarters on Tuesday evening, Modi remained enthusiastic about the victory, regardless of the margin, calling the results "a victory for the world's largest democracy" and "for India's 1.4 billion people." "Win".

"Every Indian is proud of the electoral process and credibility of the country," the incumbent declared.

But there was also a celebratory mood at the Congress party's headquarters in Delhi on Tuesday, even though it did not win the election, as leaders hailed the performance as a sign of the party's "revitalisation" after 77 years of struggle. Ruled India for more than 50 years. As an independent nation

"It was a fight to save the constitution," senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi told reporters on Tuesday. Congress and its allies were not only fighting against BJP but also against government institutions, intelligence agencies, half judiciary which were captured by PM Modi.

"People of India have saved the Constitution and democracy," he said in a tweet. The deprived and poor population of the country stands with India to protect their rights.

The BJP-led alliance suffered major losses in the prickly states of Uttar Pradesh, when it sent 80 MPs, and Maharashtra, which has 48 seats, compared to its performance in the last two general elections in 2019 and 2014. I. Record breaking majority.

The Congress-led coalition won big in both states, including in the Uttar Pradesh city of Ayodhya, where Modi personally — and controversially — inaugurated a sprawling new Hindu temple, the Ram Mandir, just months before the election. What did

"I think the BJP played the Ram temple card too early," Dr. Sabir Sinha, director of the South Asia Institute at the University of London, told CBS News, referring to the temple in Ayodhya. Building a large temple on the site of a demolished mosque has long been central to the BJP's Hindu nationalist politics in a country divided along religious lines.

Sinha said the BJP thought it was a vote-getting machine.

Sinha predicted that the BJP alliance's reduced parliamentary majority could mean some unspecified, "big and tough decisions" by Modi, which he has promised to make in the first 100 days of his third term. "Got to get off the table," Sinha predicted.

The BJP relied on Modi's popularity to push a lot of local candidates who were not popular themselves," Dr. Irfan Nooruddin, a professor of Indian politics at Georgetown University, told CBS News.

He said the BJP's shrinking majority would force the Modi government to push back on some of its expected reform measures and work more flexibly with the new coalition government, "something that Prime Minister Modi was not used to it."

The counting of votes was expected to be completed, on Tuesday night and the swearing-in ceremony of the new government was expected on June 10.
