Number Theory: How do the 2024 victory margins compare with past elections?

Jun 08, 2024 12:23 PM IST

The 2024 results have taken India back to the era of coalition governments with no single party having a majority of its own

The 2024 results have taken India back to the era of coalition governments with no single party having a majority of its own. Does this trend get reflected in the nature of constituency-level contests as well? Here are four charts that aim to answer this question.
