The 2019 Indian general election wis haudit in seven phases atween 11 Aprile an 19 Mey 2019 to constitute the 17th Lok Sabha. The votes were counted and result was declared on 23 Mey. About 900 million fowk were eligible to vote and turnout was over 67 per cent – the highest ever as well as the highest participation by weemen voters.[note 2]
The Bharatiya Janata Pairty won 303 seats, further increasing its substantial majority and the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance won 353 seats. The Indian Naitional Congress pairty won 52 seats, and the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance won 91. Other parties and their alliances won 98 seats. Indian Naitional Congress again failed to secure the requisite 10% of the seats (54 seats) in the Lok Sabha and hence Indie remains without an official opposition pairty.
Legislative assembly elections in the states o Andhra Pradesh, Arunachal Pradesh, Odisha and Sikkim were held simultaneously with the general election, as well as by-elections to twenty two seats of the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly.
