This week's In the News discusses the general elections in India. The seven resources discussed offer poll results, analysis, and commentary. More than 600 million voters in the world's largest democracy went to the polls recently to choose candidates from 622 political parties. The election produced a temporarily deadlocked parliament, with the Hindu nationalist party, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and an alliance of the Congress and United Front parties hotly pursuing representatives from smaller regional parties to reach the magic number of 272 -- a majority. On March 10, President KR Narayanan formally asked the leader of the BJP, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, whether or not he is able to form the next government. It is now up to the BJP to decide whether or not it can put together a working coalition.
