There are three important numbers to watch as polling numbers flood India’s TV networks: 272, 230 and 180.
272 –The Simple Majority: The first number is a no-brainer: If any party wins the “magic figure” of 272 seats in Parliament–the minimum required to have a simple majority in the 543-member lower house of Parliament, the Lok Sabha — it means that party will hold power for up to five years.
230 – The Hiccup: If the winning political party gets roughly 230 or fewer seats, there could be some hiccups in forming a new government. The party will need to align with two or more regional groups to reach the 272-seat majority mark.
180 — The Complex Coalitions: Less than 180 or so seats complicate things considerably. With so few seats, it means a more complex—and less stable—coalition would need to be cobbled together to achieve a ruling majority.
The government Press Information Bureau said Friday that of 520 constituencies where votes had been tallied, the BJP was leading in 268, and the Congress party in 49.
