On Saturday, the seven-phase Lok Sabha election will conclude with polling on 57 parliamentary seats across seven states and the Union territory of Chandigarh. Once polling ends, all eyes will be on exit polls that will predict which alliance will form the country's next government – the ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA) or the Congress-led opposition INDIA (Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance) bloc.

What are exit polls?

An exit poll is a post-election survey and is similar to an opinion poll, which is a pre-election survey. In an exit poll, electors are asked who they voted for, after exiting the polling station. In the latter exercise, on the other hand, people are asked who they intend to vote for.

Lok Sabha election 2024

The election commenced with the first round of voting on April 19, while phases 2-6 were held on April 26, May 7, 13, 20, and 25.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is seeking a third consecutive term at the Centre, and a third straight single-party majority. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, too, could achieve a hattrick of terms in the country's top office. PM Modi, who is the Member of Parliament (MP) from Uttar Pradesh's Varanasi, from where he contested his maiden Lok Sabha election in 2014, is contesting the seat for a third consecutive election. His main challenger is Ajay Rai, the Congress party's state unit chief, who came third in both 2014 and 2019 polls.
