According to reports, the coalition led by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), headed by India’s current Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has secured the most parliamentary seats. Simultaneously, over 100 lives have been claimed by the intense heat.

The Indian Election Commission announced on Tuesday, June 4, that the BJP-led coalition has won a total of 543 parliamentary seats in the country with the seat count.

The counting of votes for the world’s largest election began today in India, and the final election results are expected to be announced by tonight.

On the other hand, authorities have reported a rise in casualties of over 100 individuals due to the severe heatwave, which has increased the stock market value to its highest level.

Moreover, the opposing alliance, led by the ruling party under the name “National Development India,” headed by Rahul Gandhi, who secured 120 seats, has dismissed early polls regarding the Indian elections as “unreliable” and acknowledged the lead of the BJP-led coalition in the country’s elections.

The National Democratic Alliance had won 353 seats in the 2019 Indian local elections.

This comes as the Indian Meteorological Department has issued warnings of severe heatwaves in the north and east of the country over the next five days, with the heatwave intensity registering more than twice the usual limit.

In the wake of the election results, discussions have emerged regarding the implications of the BJP-led coalition’s victory for India’s domestic and foreign policies. Analysts closely monitor how the new government will navigate various challenges, including economic recovery post-pandemic, regional security concerns, and diplomatic relations with neighboring countries.

Furthermore, the voter turnout for the 2024 general elections in India has been notable, with a significant increase compared to previous years. This surge in participation reflects the electorate’s heightened engagement and interest in shaping the country’s political landscape, indicating a growing awareness and commitment to democratic processes among the Indian populace.

As the new government prepares for office, attention is also turning towards the cabinet’s composition and the potential for reshaping key ministries. Speculation abounds regarding which individuals will be appointed to crucial positions and how their leadership will influence policy directions in areas such as finance, defense, healthcare, and education. The formation of the cabinet will offer insights into the priorities and agenda of the incoming administration.
