India realiza la mayor elección del mundo

By Jordi Bou

April 19, 2024 - June 1, 2024 - a democracia más grande del mundo se prepara para elecciones en que el primer ministro Narendra Modi busca un tercer mandato de cinco años. Casi mil millones de personas votarán en cerca deun millón de casillas electorales en el curso de cinco semanas.

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.
