Washington: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has regained his top position in the ‘Time Person of the Year’ poll after the Ferguson protesters surged ahead of him for a brief period.
Modi, according to latest results, has 12.8 percent of the total votes polled and is followed by Ferguson protesters with 10.1 percent. Joshua Wong, face of the Hong Kong pro-democracy movement, is placed third with 7.5 percent, while Pakistan’s teen rights activist Malala Yousafzai is fourth with 5.2 percent.

“Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has retaken the lead in TIME’s Person of the Year poll, surpassing the protesters for Ferguson…With just four days left to vote,” the weekly news magazine said on Tuesday when Modi had 10.8 percent of the votes against 10.2 percent of the Ferguson protesters who took to street after the fatal shooting of a black teen.

Modi strengthened his lead yesterday.

Russian President Vladimir Putin with 4.1 percent has been pushed to sixth place by Ebola doctors and nurses, which are now on the fifth spot with 4.5 percent. US President Barack Obama is placed at a distant 11th position with just 2.3 percent of the total votes.

The annual poll is scheduled to end on December 6 and the poll’s winner will be announced on December 8. The TIME’s editors will choose the Person of the Year and would announce on December 10.

Since 1927, TIME has named a person who, according to it, has most influenced the news and lives in that year.
