Eurasia Group Founder Ian Bremmer told ANI, "Prediction for elections for Eurasia group is 305±10 seats. Really not much of a change from what we saw five years ago."

The American political scientist said that "from the perspective of the rest of the world", India is an "economy that has underperformed for a long time but is now doing a lot better".

“This is also a country that was very inward-focused for a long time, but this region is now becoming much more of a global leader,” he opined.

In an interview with NDTV, Bremmer said the Indian general election, from a global political perspective, is "the only thing that looks stable and consistent...everything else (including the United States election due in November) is problematic".

Bremmer also hailed the "free and fair, and transparent" Indian electoral process. "Modi is almost certainly going to win a third term on the back of pretty strong economic performance and consistent reform (and) that, in the grand scheme, is a very stabilising message," he was quoted by NDTV as saying.
