CNA Explains: India’s ‘shock’ election result and the impact on Southeast Asia

How had India’s political environment change?

India is currently in a “very various time” from its previous five years, according to Ms. Singh.

This is the change in many ways from what was now the norm prior to Prime Minister Modi’s ascent. That is a gain to coalition partners, a return to ally elections”, she added.

Ms Singh said that the cult of personality elections, as well as the intensity of politics in New Delhi, did likewise dissolve.

In South and East India, respectively, are two of Mr. Modi’s main coalition partners, the Telugu Desam Party and the Janata Dal ( United ). This results in local politics taking on a more significant role at the federal level, Ms. Singh continued.

Mr Sircar from NUS said it will become “really unchartered place” for Mr Modi, who “aggressively centralises strength” and “does never play nice with alliance partners”.

He questioned whether Mr. Modi may establish new express organizations to unite his party, as he did with his political rivals.

Given that there was no intended political or political opposition, Mr. Sircar questioned the potential part the opposition could play in the upcoming government.

” Maybe now, people who have problems you utilize proper parliamentary procedures again”, he added.

” So perhaps this is going to be a very, very good point for political democracy”.
