The BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) hopes to bag most of the 25 Lok Sabha seats in the northeast while the Congress seeks to improve upon its 2019 show to give the Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) an edge in the region.

Eight States constitute the northeast. Assam has 14 seats, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, and Tripura have two seats each, and Mizoram, Nagaland, and Sikkim one each. The BJP rules Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Tripura, and Manipur and is a component of ruling coalitions in Nagaland and Meghalaya.
