The Indian General Elections are held every 5 years and decide the composition of the Lok Sabha, i.e., the lower house of the Indian Parliament. The Lok Sabha can consist of a maximum of 552 representatives to represent the states and Union Territories. Each state gets a share of seats that is proportional to its population (more or less). Currently, 38 different parties have members in the Lok Sabha.
