Lok Sabha Election Results 2024 Highlights: Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and Seychelles Vice-President Ahmed Afif arrived in Delhi on Saturday for the swearing-in ceremony of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Nepal Prime Minister Pushpakamal Dahal 'Prachanda', accompanied by his daughter Ganga Dahal, will leave for New Delhi on Sunday.

According to the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), Maldives President Mohamed Muizzu, Sri Lanka President Ranil Wickremesinghe, Mauritius Prime Minister Pravind Kumar Jugnauth and Bhutanese Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay will also attend the swearing-in ceremony.

President Droupadi Murmu will administer the oath of office and secrecy to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other members of the Union Council of Ministers at 7.15 pm on June 09, said Rashtrapati Bhavan.

The security has also been tightened in the national capital and special measures have been arranged for foreign dignitaries.

Meanwhile, Sonia Gandhi has been unanimously elected as Chairperson of the Congress Parliamentary Party (CPP). Whereas, the Congress Working Committee passed the resolution that party MP Rahul Gandhi should be appointed as the Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha.

After meeting President Droupadi Murmu at Rashtrapati Bhavan on Friday, Narendra Modi assured that the speed with which the country progressed in the previous terms, will continue to do so.

"The 18th Lok Sabha is about new energy, youth energy, and it will work for the Amrit Kal. It is an important milestone towards fulfilling those dreams when the country will be celebrating 100 years of independence in 2047," Modi added.

The NDA has 293 MPs, comfortably above the majority mark of 272 in the 543-member Lok Sabha.

The BJP emerged victorious in 240 out of 543 seats, while the Congress secured 99 seats. Though the Lok Sabha has 543 members, counting was conducted for 542 seats following the uncontested election of BJP's Surat candidate, Mukesh Dalal. The election results did not deliver the overwhelming victory anticipated by the BJP-led NDA or as indicated by the exit polls.
