Exit poll predictions

According to the News18 Mega Exit Poll, the BJP is projected to secure its first Lok Sabha seat in Tamil Nadu, with state party president K Annamalai likely to win the Coimbatore constituency for the saffron party. The exit poll anticipates the BJP to win 1-3 seats in Tamil Nadu.

Meanwhile, the Congress may secure 8-10 seats in the state, but its ally, the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), from the INDIA bloc, that is expected to make significant gains, potentially securing between 36-39 seats.

On the other hand, the opposition AIAMDK could face challenges, with the News18 Exit Poll indicating a projected 0-2 seats for the party.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the DMK-led coalition secured a resounding victory in Tamil Nadu, claiming victory in 38 of the 39 seats. The DMK clinched 24 seats, while the Congress secured eight. Additionally, the CPI and CPM secured two seats each. The VCK and IUML each won one seat.
