India's Multi-Phase Election Will Stretch Over 44 Days. Here's Why It Takes So Long

From April 19 to June 1, a staggering 970 million eligible voters in India, constituting over 10% of the global population, are set to participate in the general elections. This monumental electoral process, spanning 44 days, is unparalleled worldwide, culminating in result announcements on June 4.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, vying for a third consecutive term, faces opposition from a broad coalition of parties, albeit with diminishing strength. Despite this, surveys overwhelmingly favour Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party, affirming his stature as one of India's most influential leaders.

The enormity of India's electorate and the logistical challenges it presents are the primary reasons behind the extended election period. Ensuring the opportunity for every registered voter to cast their ballot requires meticulous planning and execution.

Over the years, the duration of Indian elections has fluctuated, ranging from four months during the inaugural elections post-independence in 1951-1952 to just four days in 1980. In 2019, the voting process lasted 39 days, making this year's election the second-longest in Indian history.

With nearly 969 million registered voters, India's electorate surpasses the combined population of the European Union, underscoring the magnitude of the democratic exercise and its implications for the nation's governance and future trajectory.
