Dynasty Continues

So, contrary to all the polls and pundits, Congress Party has apparently won Indian parliamentary elections. Sonia Gandhi is going to be next prime minister and thus continue the legacy of her late husband and mother-in-law.

This election upset shows how polling can be bad indicator for the predicting of elections results. Apparently, polls and pundits were seduced by the booming economy and visibly improving living standards in the big cities, completely ignoring conservative countryside.

Something like that happened to Ivica Račan (Ivica Racan) last year.
