New Delhi: Votes polled in the nine-phased Lok Sabha elections will be counted tomorrow to decide who will form the next government.


Election Commission said the counting exercise to be held at 989 counting centres is likely to be completed by 5 PM and trends will be available by 11 AM.

By noon, a final picture could emerge on who would be the major players in the 16th Lok Sabha.  

Nearly 8000 candidates, including top guns Narendra Modi, Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Arvind Kejriwal were in the fray, in the largest-ever electoral exercise held in Indian history.

The exit polls have projected that BJP will emerge as the single largest party.
