Presidential election: The excitement regarding the election of the President of India is at its peak. In such a situation, the role of Regional Parties in India also becomes very important.
Presidential election: New Delhi, The agitation for the election of the President of India is at its peak. In this election, the President will be elected by the people’s representatives elected by the people. While MLAs vote in different states and union territories, MPs will exercise their votes in Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha.
In such a situation, the role of Regional Parties in India also becomes very important. The weightage of votes is most important in this particular election. The state which will have the largest population, the value of the vote of its MLAs is the highest and the vote of the legislators of the state which has less population is of less weightage.
The election of the President is a complex process. In this, the weightage of votes of MLAs of two different states is also different. The population of the state is the main parameter for the weightage. The population of the state is divided by the number of elected MLAs and then it is divided by 1000. The marks obtained after this are the weightage of the vote of an MLA of that state.
The mathematics of the weightage of MPs is different
Adds weightage to the votes of the elected members of the state legislatures. Divide this collective weightage by the total number of elected members of Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha and the score thus obtained is the weightage of an MP’s vote. If the remainder is more than 0.5 when divided, the weighting is increased by one point.
The role of regional parties can be important
If Trinamool Congress from Bengal, TRS from Telangana, Shiv Sena, NCP and other parties in Maharashtra vote together after making a strategy, then its effect can be seen in the Presidential elections.
However, the biggest influence in this election is the MLAs and MPs of Uttar Pradesh, because Uttar Pradesh has the highest population. In this way, understand that the weightage of the vote of an MLA of Uttar Pradesh is 208, then the vote weightage of the MLA of Sikkim is only 7. Is.
Curious about the presidential candidate
Curious about who will be the candidate as the next President of the country. The political parties have not put forward any names yet. Talking about the past elections, political parties appeal to regional parties and allies to vote for their candidates.
At the same time, there are independent candidates in this election who appeal to all the parties for their support. After the announcement of the names of the candidates, the regional parties will give their response. When a particular name comes up, the leaders of the parties meet among themselves, discuss the support and equations.
