Narenda Modi, Prime Minister of India since 2014

Hmmmm. First Poland (with last years suprise loss for the populist right) and now Modi takes a haircut in Indias general election.

Modi consistently increased his vote since 2014 to 303 seats

this year polls predicted a landslide and Modi promised a super-majority with 400 seats.

but the worlds largest electorate gave 2 fingers to religious, populist authoritarianism.

Modi retained 240 seats, a 20% decrease, but enough for him to lead the NDA coalition.
