Índia tem as maiores eleições do mundo

By Jordi Bou

April 19, 2024 - June 1, 2024 - O Primeiro ministro indiano Narendra Modi candidata-se a um terceiro mandato quando o seu PBJ e aliados enfrentarem um grupo de duas dezenas de partidos da oposição com quase mil milhões de eleitores a votarem durante seis 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.
