Attentive readers will by now have noticed that, after nearly a year of covering every national election here, I’ve fallen off the wagon recently. Some of that was standard end of a busy semester stuff, as well as other life events that have crowded out blogging. Hoping to get back to semi-regular coverage, but I’ll be dropping my completist ambitions for the time being.

The results currently coming in in India’s national election deserve a thread. It is not in doubt that Modi will get a third term, but his party will fall well short of expectations, losing a large number of seats relative to 2019 and possibly being forced to rely on minor parties in their coalition to form a government:

Mr. Modi, who would be only the second Indian prime minister to secure a third consecutive term, hailed “a historical feat in India’s history,” even as his party appeared likely to lose a significant number of seats in Parliament, meaning it would need to rely on smaller parties in its coalition to form a government.

The outcome was a surprising setback for Mr. Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party, which exit polls had suggested would again win an outright majority on its own. The B.J.P. was still set to win a plurality of parliamentary seats.
