The BJP, securing 240 seats, and the NDA coalition, with a clear majority in the 543-member house, are set to form the next government. The Congress, as the principal opposition party, won 99 seats. Key NDA leaders, including TDP President N Chandrababu Naidu, JD(U) leader Nitish Kumar, Shiv Sena's Eknath Shinde, and LJP's Chirag Paswan, met in New Delhi today to deliberate on the formation of the new government.

Although the exact date for the oath-taking ceremony is yet to be announced, there is speculation that it might take place over the weekend if the details of the new government are swiftly finalised. Allies like TDP and JD(U), with greater bargaining capacity, are expected to negotiate for key portfolios. Their support will be vital, given the BJP's reliance on its allies for a stable administration.

As Prime Minister Modi prepares for a record-equalling straight third term, the composition and character of the new government are expected to reflect a more significant role for BJP's allies. The NDA, comfortably above the majority mark, will now navigate the intricate process of government formation with a renewed focus on coalition dynamics.
