Prime Minister Narendra Modi claimed a third term in office on Tuesday, but early results delivered a far narrower than expected victory for India’s most powerful leader in generations.

The results indicated that Mr. Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party, or B.J.P., would still win by far the most parliamentary seats, and that he would become only the second Indian leader to start a third straight term.

But his party appeared likely to lose a significant number of seats in Parliament, meaning it would need to rely on smaller parties in its coalition to form a government. The outcome was a surprising setback for the B.J.P.

India has a parliamentary system in which any party that wins a majority, or any coalition that cobbles one together, can form a government.

Coming into the election, the coalition set a goal of winning 400 seats and made the campaign about Mr. Modi’s popularity. The early results suggest the coalition might only modestly exceed the 272 seats required for a majority.

Here are the basics of the two major parties:

Bharatiya Janata Party (B.J.P.)

The B.J.P. has been India’s ruling party since 2014, when it defeated a coalition led by the Indian National Congress, which used to dominate the country’s politics. The B.J.P. grew from a century-old Hindu-nationalist political movement. Its first time in power, from 1998 to 2004, it concentrated on economic reforms. Under Narendra Modi, it has doubled down on Hindu-first priorities and consolidated power.

Indian National Congress

The Indian National Congress party was formed in 1885 as an independence movement, when India was still part of the British Empire. It included nearly all of India’s founding fathers, including Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru. Congress became the ruling party shortly after India's independence in 1947 and led the government with brief interruptions over the next 50 years.

    Note: Jammu and Kashmir and Assam have redrawn the borders of their parliamentary constituencies since the last general election. Because these changes make it difficult to compare votes in newly drawn constituencies with votes in constituencies used in 2019, we are listing them separately.

    Correction:

    June 5, 2024

    An earlier version of this article omitted the coalition membership of several political parties. A.J.S.U., Apna Dal (Sonelal) and Janesena Party are part of the N.D.A. coalition, while Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam and Bharat Adivasi Party are with the INDIA coalition. The total number of seats gained by each coalition has been updated.
