Auf Modi wartet ein historischer Erdrutschsieg
May 23, 2019 -
Indiens Premierminister Narendra Moda wird einen historischen Erdrutschsieg erringen, der den Hindu Nationalistenführer zum beein-druckensten Politiker seit Jahrzehnten macht.
Election Commission data by midafternoon showed the Bharatiya Janata Party leading in contests for 299 out of 542 seats in the lower house of Parliament, with its main rival, the Indian National Congress, ahead in 50 contests.
The final tally was not expected until Thursday evening at the earliest.
The election has been seen as a referendum on India's 68-year-old prime minister, whose economic reforms have had mixed results but whose popularity as a social underdog in India's highly stratified society has endured.
