The Bharatiya Janata Party in India won the the elections with an overwhelming majority, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been re-appointed to his position for another 5-year term.

He has formed a government with his political allies in the NDA (National Democratic Alliance), and has chosen his new Cabinet of Ministers who will work closely with him and advise him. Some of the prominent positions:

Nirmala Sitharaman: The former Defence Minister has been appointed India’s first female Finance Minister. This is another very important position on PM Modi’s Cabinet.

She has a big job ahead of her:

      • India’s economic growth rate has been slowing down.
      • India is at an all-time high of 6.1% unemployment. This means that about 6 people out of every 100 do not have jobs.
      • This needs to be fixed!

Amit Shah: Home Minister

Rajnath Singh: Defence Minister
