Maharashtra Lok Sabha Elections 2024: Schedule, Phases, Seats, Key Candidates & All You Need To Know |

Chief Election Commissioner Rajiv Kumar announced the dates for voting in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections on Saturday. Kumar was accompanied by newly-appointed Election Commissioners Gyanesh Kumar and Dr Sukhbir Singh Sandhu during the announcement at the press conference in New Delhi.

The General Elections will start on April 19 and counting will be held on June 4. The Lok Sabha elections in Maharashtra are set to be held from April 19 to May 20 in five phases. The first phase of general elections in Maharashtra will be held on April 19, next on April 26, next on May 7, next on May 13 and the final phase on May 20.

The elections in Mumbai will be held on May 20, along with Palghar, Kalyan and Thane. Despite its seat count, Maharashtra is typically set to undergo elections in five phases, mirroring past trends.

Maharashtra's Significance In National Politics

Maharashtra stands as a key player in Indian politics, boasting the second-highest number of Lok Sabha seats nationwide, with 48 constituencies, trailing only behind Uttar Pradesh, which holds 80 seats. Known for its deeply rooted loyalty towards local issues and its tradition for unpredictable electoral outcomes, Maharashtra's importance during elections cannot be overstated.

Landslide victories are a rarity in Maharashtra, making each election a closely contested affair. With its sizeable seat count, the state holds the power to sway the outcome of Lok Sabha elections, particularly in critical situations.

Alongside Shiv Sena and various state-level parties, Maharashtra serves as a stronghold for major national parties such as the BJP, NCP and Congress. The Shiv Sena and NCP split has added a level of complexity to the political dynamics making it an even more interesting contest this time.
