The parliament elections in India will happen in May which is expected to the most expensive in the world. According to a report, the Indian general elections will be the most expensive to be held in a democratic based nation. There is also no transparency related to the contributions received by the political parties in the country. The date for the election has not been revealed yet by the election commission, but the poll will be conducted in 543 seats.
Milan Vaishnav, the director of South Asia Program said elections for US presidential as well as congressional elections both estimated an expense of USD 6.5 billion in 2016, but the Lok Sabha elections in 2014 had an expense of USD 5 billion. The upcoming elections will easily exceed the amount making it the most expensive in the world. In the polls there is only a slight difference between the ruling party BJP and opposition which makes this election really interesting.
