Lok Sabha Election Results 2019 HIGHLIGHTS: The Election Commission of India Friday released the final tally of Lok Sabha Elections 2019. The BJP scripted history by winning a record 303 seats out of 542 whereas the Congress could manage only 52 seats. Narendra Modi, the first non-Congress full majority Prime Minister to be re-elected, has done so with a stronger majority. With the saffron surge across the country, the Congress has been pushed to the margins of national politics — so much so that it has not yet managed to claim the statutory position of Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha.
Union Cabinet meeting held Friday passed the resolution to dissolve 16th Lok Sabha. The NDA parliamentary committee meeting is also scheduled to take place Saturday, where discussions regarding the government formation and swearing-in of the new Cabinet could take place.
