ELECTIONS IN INDIA

Elections in India are considered to be the most vibrant festivals of democracy that bring out multiple hues of our Parliamentary system of government. Lying at the core of Indian democracy, elections broadly shape the contours of the government, the two houses of Parliament, the state and union territory legislative assemblies and the offices of the President and the Vice President.

The Parliament of India consists of the President, the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha. The President is the head of state, while the Prime Minister is the head of government. The PM is appointed by the President in accordance with possible permutations of government formation in Lok Sabha post-elections. The power of decision-making rests with the PM and his council of ministers comprising the Union Cabinet.

Elections are a mammoth exercise in India as they decide the fate of the largest democracy of the world, an influential nation in South Asia and an emerging superpower.

ELECTIONS SYSTEM IN INDIA


Types of Elections in India


Following are the major types of elections in the country:
  1. Elections to Lok Sabha
  2. Elections to Rajya Sabha
  3. Elections to State Assemblies
  4. Elections to Legislative Council
  5. Elections to the posts of President, Vice-President, Prime Minister and Chief Minister
  6. Elections to Local Bodies
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.
