Key Highlights:

  1. The US praises India’s largest electoral exercise, the 2024 Lok Sabha polls.
  2. US expects continued close partnership with India post-NDA’s third win.
  3. The BJP-led NDA is set to win 291 seats, with final results pending.

On Tuesday, the United States commended India for successfully completing the world’s largest electoral exercise, the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, which spanned 44 days from April 19 to June 1. US State Department Spokesperson Matthew Miller highlighted the enduring partnership between the two nations following the NDA’s third consecutive victory under Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Miller expressed optimism about the future of US-India relations, emphasizing the strong governmental and people-to-people ties. “I expect a continued close partnership between the United States and India,” he stated, underscoring the robust collaboration that he anticipates will persist.

The BJP-led NDA is projected to win 291 seats, while the opposition bloc INDIA is expected to secure 234 seats, with the remaining seats going to other parties. The final results are still pending as the Election Commission of India continues to count votes, with two seats yet to be declared in the 543-member Lok Sabha, where the majority mark is 272.

Miller noted that the US will refrain from making any definitive comments until the election results are finalized. He commended the Indian government and its voters for their participation in this significant democratic event, calling it the largest exercise of democracy in history.

Responding to queries about potential Western influence on India’s elections, Miller asserted that the US did not attempt to influence the electoral process. He emphasized that while the US openly expresses its views, this does not constitute an attempt to sway election outcomes in India or elsewhere.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi celebrated the preliminary results, declaring the BJP-led NDA’s third consecutive government a victory for “Viksit Bharat” (Developed India), “Sabka Sath Sabka Vikas” (Together with All, Development for All), and the strong faith in India’s Constitution. Modi noted this historic win marks the first time since 1962 that a government completing two full terms has secured a third term.
