Narendra Modi is going to be the Prime Minister of India for the third time in a row. He is going to write his name next to Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of independent India. Although he could not get a single majority like Nehru.

The final results of all 543 Lok Sabha seats in India have been announced. According to the results published on the country’s Election Commission website, the ruling party BJP has won 240 out of 543 seats. Besides, the country’s main opposition party Congress has won 99 seats. Even though the NDA is going to form the government for the third time in a row, the BJP has suffered a big blow. In this context, the United States praised India’s democratic system and electoral process.

According to the media Hindustan Times, Washington called India’s election “the largest democratic process in the history of the world”. Meanwhile, Washington remained “silent” about the BJP not getting a single majority.

Regarding Indian elections, US State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller said, “Thank you to all Indian voters for completing this great election.” We are looking forward to the final results.

Matthew Miller also said, We will not comment on who won and who lost the election. We follow this principle all over the world. The most important thing for us is that the world’s largest democratic process has been completed in the last 6 weeks. People of India came and voted in this election.

It should be noted that this is the first time that BJP did not get a single majority after getting a single majority in 2014 and 2019. Their alliance partner JD(U) won 12 seats. TDP won 16 seats. Chirag Paswan’s LJP won 5 seats. On the other hand, pro-Shinde Shiv Sena has won 7 seats. Besides, NCP won 1 seat, Jan Sena 2 seats, UPPL 1 seat, Assam Constituent Assembly 1 seat. In this situation, BJP has to keep its partners to keep it stable by forming the next government.
