This year too, the readers of the magazine got a chance to vote for their favourite person to make them the winner of the polls. However, even after the initial glitches, that the Indian Prime Minister had in the poll this time round, he is now leading the poll. The poll, whose results is to be announced on 7th of December 2016 now shows Narendra Modi on the top, with 11% of the votes. His nearest opponent is the editor-in-chief of the WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, with as many as 9% of all the votes.
The Indian Prime Minister has quite been able to leave his mark on world politics ever since he has been elected the Prime Minister of the nation. Other than some of the most valuable and well thought out schemes for his nation, he had come up with some of the most applauded foreign policies with various nations. The latest example of his decision-making power is shown from the demonetization of the nation, with the currencies of the higher denomination.
