Special Briefing: India’s Election – Risks and Outlook

Monday 8 April @ 1630hrs BST (London) / 1130hrs EDT (New York)

On 19 April, India will begin a seven-phase general election lasting until the start of June, with nearly 970 million eligible voters deciding the make-up of the 543-seat Lok Sabha. The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party and Prime Minister Narendra Modi are strong favourites to remain in power but have been accused of cracking down on the opposition and undermining the country’s democracy. We will be assessing the security risks surrounding the polls themselves amid elevated religious tensions domestically, and how the outcome of the election could shape India’s future operating environment and relations with regional powers going forward.
