The 1989 Indian general election was the first election since the 1971 general election to be brought about by the expiration of a Parliament's term.


The INC had formed a minority supported by Akali Dal since the 1982 election and sought a renewed term for this government following the expiration of the Legislative Assembly's term.


The election was once again largely a repeat of the previous two elections with INC minority continuing in power.
