Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Prime Minister of India is elected through a process that aligns with the parliamentary system of governance. In India, the political party or coalition that secures a majority in the Lok Sabha, the lower house of Parliament, is invited to form the government. The leader of the majority party or coalition is then appointed as the Prime Minister by the President of India. The Prime Minister is typically the leader of the party or coalition that has won the majority of seats in the Lok Sabha elections. Thus, while the Prime Minister is not directly elected by the general populace, the appointment is based on the outcome of the parliamentary elections and the majority support in the Lok Sabha​​.
