India Elections : EC announces final results of general elections

India has yet again been surprised by Indians. Last time, no one thought a Congress-led UPA would emerge winners.  And yet like a silent tsunami, the Congress swamped its rivals to triumphantly return to power.

The Election Commission of India Sunday formally announced final results for 541 of the 543 elected seats in the Lok Sabha or lower house of parliament.

Counting in two seats had to be stopped Saturday as the electronic voting machines had developed snags. The seats were Tonk-Sawai Madhopur in Rajasthan and Chandauli in Uttar Pradesh.
