India Finishes Elections for 2009

The month-long general election process in India , which was accompanied by violence in Calcutta (1 death and 17 injuries occurred as a result of clashes), is now coming to a close. A BBC News article reports that votes will be counted on Saturday, and new parliament must be formed by June 2.

For government details about elections in India, take a look at the website of the country's Election Commission. Here you can find information about voter registration, election laws, and past elections in India as well as current election information (such as this overview of India's election highlights). Once the new Parliament is formed, you can keep track of its activities on its website.
