INDIAN ELECTION SYSTEM

Indian Election System

India has a bicameral legislature, which means there are two houses in the Indian Parliament: the Lok Sabha (House of People), and the Rajya Sabha (Council of States). The most common understanding of elections is the General or the Lok Sabha election, in which registered adult voters cast their votes to directly elect Members of Parliament.
The party that emerges with majority forms the government at the centre and appoints a Prime Minister.

Election Process in India

Elections are also held for the State Assemblies or Vidhan Sabha, through which the state governments are formed and the Chief Minister chosen, and also for local government bodies such as the Municipalities and the Panchayats. The President of India and the members of the Rajya Sabha are also elected, though through a different method.

Eligibility to Contest in Indian Election

The Indian Constitution and the subsequent Acts of the Parliament have provided clear guidelines for the eligibility to contest the Lok Sabha and the Vidhan Sabha elections. Indian nationals 25 years of age and above are eligible. A non-citizen of India cannot contest the elections. A person convicted of any offense and sentenced to an imprisonment of two or more years is disqualified from contesting elections. This includes a person on bail, after a conviction, and with his appeal pending for disposal by the court. A person can be disqualified as a member to the houses if he is declared mentally unfit by a competent court or if he is an undischarged insolvent. Any person who has voluntarily acquired the citizenship of a foreign country is also disqualified. Last Updated on 25 April, 2014.
