India set to count votes

New Delhi, India – India will count votes on Thursday after its seven-phase elections drew to a close on May 19, with incumbent Prime Minister Narendra Modi tipped to win a second term in office.

More than 67 percent of 900 million eligible voters cast their ballot in the mammoth elections – spread over six weeks – the highest ever voter turnout in the country’s independent history.

Exit polls have predicted a clear majority for Modi in the 545-member Lok Sabha, the lower house of parliament.
