The Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi was today declared as the winner of TIME Magazine’s Person Of The Year 2016 – Reader’s Poll. He has won this poll by beating out other world leaders like US President-elect Donald Trump, incumbent US leader Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
He won this poll with 18 per cent of the vote when the poll closed last night, getting significantly more votes than his closest contenders, including the current and future presidents of the United States, Barak Obama, Donald Trump and Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange, who all received 7 per cent of the 'yes' vote.

Time's editors will decide the final Person of the Year later this week, but the online poll results provide a look at how the world sees these figures and Modi emerged as the most influential figure in 2016, according to the online poll.

Important Points to Note :
  • It is for the second time that Modi has won the online readers' poll for Time Person of the Year title, securing the honour in 2014, when he had got more than 16 per cent of the almost five million votes cast.
  • Last year German Chancellor Angela Merkel was Time's 'Person of the Year'.
