The Election Commission of India announced the results for all 543 Lok Sabha seats early this morning. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has fallen short of the majority needed to form the government on its own, securing 240 seats—32 seats shy of the 272-seat majority mark. The BJP will have to rely on its allies within the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) to form the next government.

Despite the BJP’s shortfall, the NDA has managed to secure a comfortable majority with the support of its allies. A meeting of the NDA parties has been called in New Delhi today to discuss the formation of the government.

The Indian National Developmental, Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) bloc, comprising several opposition parties, won over 200 seats but did not cross the majority threshold. The bloc will also hold a meeting today to strategize its next steps.

N. Chandrababu Naidu’s Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal (United) have emerged as crucial allies, holding 28 seats between them. Both parties have reaffirmed their allegiance to the NDA and will be present at the alliance’s meeting.

The Assembly elections in Odisha and Andhra Pradesh have resulted in political changes. In Odisha, the BJP achieved a historic victory, ending Naveen Patnaik’s 24-year tenure. In Andhra Pradesh, Chandrababu Naidu’s TDP delivered a decisive defeat to Jagan Mohan Reddy’s YSR Congress Party, positioning Naidu to become the Chief Minister for the fourth time.
