Elections in India

Jammu & Kashmir and Jharkhand Elections

Assembly elections 2014 for 81 seats in Jharkhand and 87 seats in J&K are going to be held in five phases on Nov 25, Dec 2, Dec 9, Dec 14, and Dec 20, respectively.

In Jharkhand, under-development and local issues like employment, law and order, roads, displacements, tribal welfare, drinking water, electricity, and, of course, the Modi factor will figure prominently. The main political parties in the fray are BJP, INC and JMM.

J&K is all set to witness a paradigm shift in its politics. While there is no unanimity within the BJP regarding the inclusion of the contentious Article 370 in the poll manifesto, many parties are questioning its new-found proximity with former separatist leaders. Some of the major issues include anti-incumbency factor, rehabilitation of flood victims, political stability, and, to a certain extent, the Modi factor. This election will mainly be a keen contest among BJP, INC, NC and PDP.

According to a recent India TV-C Voter Opinion Poll, the BJP may emerge as the single largest party in Jharkhand (29-35 seats) but may miss the half way mark. In J&K, the PDP may become the single largest party with 27 to 33 seats.

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.
  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.
