انتخابات الهند ... الأكبر في العالم

By Jordi Bou

April 19, 2024 - June 1, 2024 - يسعى رئيس الوزراء الهندي ناريندرا مودي للفوز بولاية ثالثة عندما يواجه حزب بهاراتيا جاناتا الحاكم وحلفاؤه مجموعة من نحو عشرين حزباً معارضاً بينما يدلي ما يقرب من مليار شخص بأصواتهم على مدى ستة أسابيع.

India’s general election pits Modi’s ruling BJP and its allies, against the main opposition Congress party-led alliance of about two dozen parties.

Nearly 970 million voters – more than the entire population of the U.S., the EU and Russia combined – are eligible to vote, making the election the largest democratic exercise in the world.

They will cast their votes through 5.5 million electronic voting machines at around one million polling stations from the snow-clad mountains in the Himalayas, the deserts of Rajasthan and sparsely populated islands in the Indian Ocean.

A victory would make Modi, 73, only the second prime minister after Jawaharlal Nehru, India's independence hero and its first prime minister, to win a third straight term.
