India might have to wait till 24th May to find out if PM Modi will be taking oath again if the result comes down to the wire

The popularity of Prime Minister Modi still seems intact as per CVoter popularity ratings. Modi’s nett popularity has only grown this year from a 32.37% on 1st January to 47.39% on 20th April. That is an upswing of nett 15 points in less than 4 months.

India is waiting with bated breath to find out who would take oath as the Prime Minister and rule the country for the next five years. While several people say that BJP might get a thumping majority on its own, many are saying that the result might come down to the wire. If the 2019 results do come to the wire, Election Commission says that people of the country might have to wait till 24th May to find out which party would form the government at the centre.

Sanjay Basu, Addition CEO, West Bengal, informed that the final results could be delayed due to the Supreme Court’s latest order to the Election Commission to increase the random verification of VVPAT slips with EVMs to five polling booths per assembly segment in each parliamentary seat. He said that this will extend the counting time by 8 to 10 hours. He said that counting of VVPAT slips, postal ballots and scanning of Electronically Transmitted Postal Ballots System (ETPBS) will only make the process lengthy.

“Our aim is to complete the entire counting accurately and seamlessly. Counting of five polling stations of every assembly segment will be done at one table. So the final result is expected by next day,” the ECI official told IANS.

The votes are to be counted on 23rd May 2019, however, while a decisive result would reveal itself on 23rd itself, if the results are unclear or 2019 turns out to be an election where results are close, India might have to wait till 24th to find out which party would be forming the government.

The popularity of Prime Minister Modi still seems intact as per CVoter popularity ratings. Modi’s nett popularity has only grown this year from a 32.37% on 1st January to 47.39% on 20th April. That is an upswing of nett 15 points in less than 4 months.

According to CVoter polls, Prime Minister Modi, as on 20th April 2019 has a whopping 24.65% lead over Rahul Gandhi. The green graph you see there is the approval rating of PM Modi as compared to Rahul Gandhi. That blue graph that appears miles below the green graph, is that of Rahul Gandhi.

According to the CVoter poll, a whopping 56.43% said that they would want to see Narendra Modi as the Prime Minister. Followed by a 22% for Rahul Gandhi, 0.99% for Sonia Gandhi, 2.71% for Mayawati, 1.41% for Manmohan Singh, 1.67% for Mamata Banerjee, 1.40% for Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, 0.08% for Lalu Yadav, 1.67% for Arvind Kejriwal, 0.15% for Chandrababu Naidu and 4.83% for others.
