Narendra Modi vor historischer dritter Amtszeit

By Jordi Bou

April 19, 2024 - June 1, 2024 - Sieg für Narendra Modi bei den nächsten Wahlen würde ihn zum erst zweiten Premierminister nach Jawaharlal Nehru, Indiens Held der Unabhängigkeit, mder direkt eine dritte Amtszeit gewinnt.

If he wins, Modi wouldn’t be the first prime minister to secure three successive terms; Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s first prime minister, died in office in 1964, two years after being elected to a fourth straight term.

However, since then, no Indian leader has served more than two consecutive terms, leading some critics to say Modi is attempting to break a norm.

Meanwhile, if Modi stays in office until May 30, he will surpass Manmohan Singh to become the third longest-serving prime minister after Nehru and Indira Gandhi.
