Lok Sabha Polls 2024 | How many seats BJP will win? This is what US political scientist predicts

Lok Sabha Polls 2024 | US political scientist and founder of the Eurasia Group Ian Bremmer on Wednesday projected that the BJP and its allies would secure approximately 305 seats ± 10 seats in the Lok Sabha Elections 2024.

He noted that this estimate is similar to the results from five years ago. Bremmer also highlighted that India is increasingly establishing itself as a significant global leader.

In an interview with media outlet, Ian Bremmer said, “Prediction for elections for Eurasia group is 305±10 seats. Really not much of a change from what we saw 5 years ago. Internationally, not just from the US perspective, but from the perspective of the rest of the world. This is an economy that has underperformed for a long time but is now doing a lot better. This is also a country that was very inward-focused for a long time, but this region is now becoming much more of a global leader.”

He said that there is a lot more willingness to take India as a place to do business with over the long term.

The founder of the Eurasia Group, a risk and research consulting firm said, “There is a lot more willingness to take India as a place you wanna do business over the long term...India is one of the countries in the world that a lot of companies are paying a lot more attention to because they see it as stable.”

"It's soon going to be the third largest economy in the world. Over the next five years, all of these things are positive as well as consistent leadership over what is likely to be 15 years," he added.

The Lok Sabha elections are being held in India across seven phases. The counting of votes will happen on June 4.


While Bharatiya Janata Party under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is seeking a third straight term in power, while the Opposition INDIA bloc is aiming to wrest back power from the incumbent BJP.
