The First Phase of Jammu & Kashmir and Jharkhand Elections


Voting for the first phase of the 2014 Assembly polls in Jammu & Kashmir and Jharkhand was held by and large in a peaceful manner on November 25, barring stray incidents of violence. The phase saw polling for 15 Assembly seats in Jammu and Kashmir and 13 constituencies in Jharkhand. While 123 candidates contested in the first leg of the Assembly election in Jammu and Kashmir, Jharkhand had 199 candidates in the fray in this phase.

In most of the 15 constituencies in J&K, voters braved the threat posed by terrorist outfits and the boycott call given by separatist groups to turn out in large numbers to cast their franchise in the first of the five-phase polls in the state. The state recorded around 70 percent polling till 5 pm.

Similarly, in Jharkhand, despite the poll boycott call given by the Maoists, voter turnout was good, totalling 61.92 per cent, in the 13 constituencies, spread across six Maoist-affected districts.

The Election Commission has drawn up a five-phase Assembly election schedule for 81 seats in Jharkhand and 87 seats in Jammu & Kashmir on Nov 25, Dec 2, Dec 9, Dec 14, and Dec 20, respectively.

Types of Elections in India

Right to Vote
The Constituent Assembly adopted the principle of universal adult franchise as the main method of democratic representation in the Lok Sabha and in the State Legislative Assemblies. The original Article 325, providing for adult suffrage fixed the age of eligibility to vote for elections to the Lok Sabha and Vidhan Sabhas, at 21 years, but by the 62nd Amendment to this clause passed in 1989, it has been reduced to 18 years.

Election Process in India
In an election, various candidates of different parties contest against each other, out of which the people elect their representative. The stages of the election process of India include delimitation of constituencies wherein the entire area (the whole country in the case of Lok Sabha elections and that particular state in the case of Legislative Assembly elections) is divided into constituencies. After the demarcation of constituency, the voters' list of each constituency is prepared and published and nomination papers are filed by the candidates. Thereafter, nomination papers are scrutinised. The next stage is the campaign by all the candidates and the parties. The election campaign ends 48 hours before the polling. The last step is the counting of votes and declaration of result.

Political Parties in India
A political party is a group of people who want to achieve common goals by contesting elections and exercising political power upon winning. India has a multi-party system. Some of the major political parties in India are: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Indian National Congress, Bahujan Samaj party (BSP), Samajwadi Party, Communist Party of India (CPI), Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), National Congress Party (NCP), Janata Dal United (JDU) and Shiv Sena. There are also various regional parties in India.
