About Jammu & Kashmir Elections

The blissful paradise of Jammu and Kashmir, snuggled on the circuit of the Himalayas has always been the point of discontentment between India and her neighbor Pakistan. The Kashmir issue and political hatred between two countries have never stopped the Jammu & Kashmir Political Parties, to play a mammoth role in holding together the political sentiments clear & crisp and within the constitutional rights of Indian dominion. There are several state parties also that desire for the purpose of establishing strong political position in the state. Like in other states in India, this state also has multi-party democratic system of governance.

Currently, Indian National Congress and National Conference are in majority in the state legislature with 17 seats and 28 seats respectively. Under article 370, Jammu and Kashmir are granted a special autonomous status.

The last Assembly elections were contested in the year 2002. The National Conference lost in the 2002 polls after holding the office for 25 years. The 2008 Assembly polls of Jammu and Kashmir had National Conference win 28 seats, People's Democratic Alliance won 21 seats, congress party won 17 seats, BJP registered the win of 11 seats, while others win 10 seats.

The Assembly Elections of 2002 in the Jammu and Kashmir played a crucial role and seemed to be turning point in the political history. The elections helped in restoring the faith of people of Jammu and Kashmir. It was the time when PDP came into the power and soon there was a new chapter which was ready to be written in the political history of Jammu and Kashmir.

Administrative structure

The state has a special status within the union government of India. Unlike the rest of the states, Jammu and Kashmir enjoys special autonomy under Article 370 of the Constitution of India. The union government has direct legislative powers in matters of defense, foreign policy, and communications within the state and has indirect influence in matters of citizenship, Supreme Court jurisdiction, and emergency powers.

Under the constitution of Jammu and Kashmir, the governor is the head of state, and is appointed by the President of India. He is assisted by the Chief Minister and a council of ministers. The legislature consists of two houses: the Legislative Assembly (Vidhan Sabha) and the smaller Legislative Council (Vidhan Parishad). The members of Vidhan Parishad are elected by various groups of politicians, local administrators, and educators and a few by the governor. The state sends six members to the Lok Sabha (Lower House) and six members, elected by the combined Legislative Assembly and Council, to the Rajya Sabha (Upper House). The High Court consists of a chief justice and 11 other judges, who are appointed by the President of India.

Issues of the state

Some of the major issues that dominated the electoral process in the state includes the self rule or autonomy for J&K, separatism, militancy, presence of security forces and other issues including development, unemployment, education, electricity and water.

For many years militancy has been a major hindrance to the development of the state. The ongoing bloodshed and loss of innumerable human lives has brought forth the true face of the politicians who encourage regionalism just to increase their vote bank. Kashmir dispute is basically related to national identity and future of people of the state. People want to live a peaceful life. Economic development comes as a result of investment and there wont be any investment in an area where there is political instability, armed conflict or a civil war.

The issue of unemployment among the youth poses a big challenge for the political parties. The lack of employment opportunities is taking the youth to drugs and anti-social activities.

The first legislature of kingdom of now the state of Jammu and Kashmir was of the Maharaja of Kashmir Hari Singh in 1934. However, it was considered undemocratic as there was restricted on the participation of any political party. Later when first free democratic elections were held in the state, the National Conference got a majority in the new constituent assembly with Sheikh Abdullah as the head of government. The members of the Legislative Assembly are presently 87 and serve the assembly for a six-year term. While the assembly is administered by Speaker, the leader of the house is the chief minister.
