we are yet to establish the exact identity of the deceased, he is no stranger to red tape. a consensus candidate cannot be ruled out.In athree-part series Firstpost will be analysing how the President of India is elected how various parties are stacked up in terms of seats/votes and whether a united Opposition can defeat the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate This is part 1 of the series In the Parliamentary form of democracy the president is the head of the state and the supreme commander of its defence forces He is elected by the representatives elected by the people which is the MPs and the MLAs The president is indirectly elected and hence has lesser powers than the prime minister who is elected directly by the people Rashtrapati Bhavan Reuters Electoral college and a complex formula The President of India is elected by an electoral college comprising of: The calculation of votes for the presidential elections are done using an important formula and steps as follows: Value of vote of an MLA = Total Population of the state as per 1971 Census Total number of elected members of the Legislative Assembly × 1000 Total Value of votes of all MLAs of a State Assembly = Value of vote of an MLA × No of elective seats in the Assembly Total Value of votes of all MLAs across 31 States = Sum of Total Value of votes of all MLAs of the 31 State Assemblies= 549474 Value of vote of MP = Total Value of votes of all MLAs (549474) Total number of elected members of Parliament (776) =708 Total Value of votes of all MPs = Value of a vote of an MP × Total No of MPs = 549408 Total Value of Votes of Electoral College = Total Value of votes of all MLAs + Total Value of votes of all MPs =549474 + 549408 = 1098882 What’s the voting process like Nominated members of the Lok Sabha as well as the Rajya Sabha are not allowed to vote in the presidential election Voting is done through a secret ballot and members are not bound by any party whip The value of the votes of MLAs differs from state to state while the value of the votes of MPs is fixed An equal weightage is given to votes of MPs and MLAs (50 percent each) in the overall electoral college The election is held in accordance with the system of proportional representation by means of a single transferable vote Each elector/voter has to mark preferences for the candidates contesting the election by placing the figures 1 2 3 and so on against the names of the candidates in the order of his/her preference There can be as many preferences as the number of candidates contesting the election It is compulsory to mark the first preference for the vote to be considered as valid Marking other preferences is optional A candidate requires "50 percent of valid votes polled +1" (quota) of the first preference votes cast to win an election In case no candidate gets the quota then the candidate getting the lowest number of first preference votes is excluded This candidate’s second preference votes are then distributed among the remaining candidates This process of exclusion and elimination is repeated till a candidate gets the required quota In case even after the exclusion of candidates receiving the lowest number of votes no candidate secures the requisite quota and ultimately one candidate remains as the lone continuing candidate he is declared elected What’s rationale behind adopting this process The Constitution provides two reasons for adopting the above formulae: Hence the objective of this complex calculation method is to ensure that the President of India is an equal representative of the states as well as the Union of India This is in line with the spirit of the Constitution of India which is "neither purely federal nor purely unitary in character" and built on the principles of co-operative federalism One man one vote vs current formula One wonders why the architects of our Constitution chose this compounded procedure for the valuation of votes of electors They could have simply used "one man one vote" principle After all the size of a Legislative Assembly is related to the size of the population of the state This would have also ensured that the underlying principle of proportional representation which is to prevent exclusion of minorities from the benefits of the state is adhered to The "one man one vote" principle suffers from shortcomings especially with respect to the spirit behind the elections for the head of a state The number of members in state legislative assemblies is far higher in comparison to the members of Parliament and hence parity between states and the Union cannot be established The Constitution provides that there cannot be more than one MLA for every 75000 of the population It doesn’t actually lay down that "x" number of people must necessarily be represented by one MLA It also limits the maximum size of a Legislative Assembly to 500 Both these provisions mean that uniformity between states cannot be established by "one man one vote" method An MLA represents different sizes of the population in different states for example 147 lakh in Odisha 149 lakh in undivided Andhra 208 lakhs in Uttar Pradesh etc based on the 1971 census Heavily populated states play a key role The top five Indian states on the basis of population (Uttar Pradesh Maharashtra Bihar West Bengal and Tamil Nadu) account for 48 percent of the total Electoral College votes of MLAs and 45 percent of total votes of MPs The BJP is in power in two of these states while anti-BJP parties rule the other two The AIADMK which is the ruling party in Tamil Nadu is currently facing a leadership crisis While the Constitution has taken utmost care to ensure that the voice of the minority is heard it is the principle of natural justice that those states which have high population play a bigger role in the election of the president The fact that there could be different parties in the majority in the Lok Sabha and in the Legislative Assembly from the state plays a balancing act To sum it up the complexity of the method and the diversity of the Indian political system makes the presidential elections an exciting contest Here’s a list of all Indian states and the number of Legislative Assembly seats and the value of an MLA’s vote from that particular: S No Name of the State No of Legislative Assembly seats Value of the vote of each MLA Total

Bengal 294 151 44394 Total 4120 549474 In Part II of the series we will see how different parties and blocks are stacked up in various bodies for these elections Chester-le-Street: England captain Alastair Cook praised his side’s determination after a series-clinching win over Sri Lanka Monday’s nine-wicket success in the second Test at the Riverside gave England an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the three-match campaign The fourth and as it turned out final day’s play also saw the 31-year-old Cook become the youngest player and first from England to score 10000 Test runs during his 47 not out Alastair Cook relaxes after reaching 10000 test runs and winning the 2nd Test Getty Images That he had a second innings was due to some long-awaited Sri Lankan resistance with the bat Their first innings 101 made in response to England’s 498 for nine declared featuring Moeen Ali’s Test-best 155 not out followed equally meagre totals of 91 and 119 during an innings defeat in the first Test at Headingley But with Dinesh Chadimal scoring 126 and skipper Angelo Mathews making 80 Sri Lanka’s vastly-improved second innings 475 left England needing 79 for victory "The 10000 has been a milestone that has driven me over the last few years" said left-handed opener Cook "You get tested at the top of the order in all conditions against the best bowlers bowling with the new ball . and I’m glad I have hung around long enough not to get dropped" added Cook a veteran of 128 Tests ‘Died a death’ As an opener Cook knows all about the need for mental resilience and he was proud to see England show similar traits "It was tough The pitch died a death and was a bit more like Colombo than the Chester-le-Street we have known in the past" he said after England recorded their sixth victory in as many Tests at north-east county Durham’s headquarters "They (Sri Lanka) made us work hard for it and sometimes it is a bit sweeter that way because you feel you have earned it "It was a slog today (Monday) and yesterday (Sunday) and James Anderson’s five for 50 in those conditions showed his class" said Cook after the Lancashire paceman was named man-of-the-match following a haul that included his 450th Test wicket Anderson who has spent the bulk of his Test career alongside Cook said of his captain’s landmark: "What an amazing achievement All that hard work the effort the lows and highs as well "He should treasure it – and to be the youngest to 10000 is incredible" Anderson England’s all-time leading Test wicket-taker jokingly pointed out how Cook never drinks more than four pints at the bar Cook confirmed the limit was still in place regardless of the fact he’d just made English cricket history "Okay I’ll be having my three-and-a-half pints" he said "One of them will be a (shandy) top . as long as Jimmy buys me one" Sri Lanka although well beaten again at least restored some pride in a match where spinner Rangana Herath took his 300th Test wicket and made a fifty as well "Not scoring more than 100 in the first innings was very disappointing" said Mathews "There were no demons in the wicket We could have got at least 250 on that wicket to give ourselves a chance in this game "We talked about bringing back the fight — the Sri Lankan fight that we’ve not had in the last couple of weeks" Meanwhile Mathews who played cricket alongside two of the only 12 men who’ve scored 10000 Test runs — retired Sri Lanka greats Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene — congratulated Cook "He’s been an amazing player for England — to get into that club is not at all easy" Mathews said As for the bowlers on both sides who enjoyed landmark matches Mathews said: "Jimmy Anderson has also been amazing over the past so many years . (and) finally Rangana Herath for taking his 300th wicket "They’ve been amazing players for their country" Umpire Aleem Dar left the field due to illness midway through Monday’s play But the experienced Pakistani official is expected to be well enough to fulfil his scheduled TV umpire duties in the third Test at Lord’s starting on 9 June Written by Express News Service | Mumbai | Published: November 17 2013 3:31 am Related News Water supply in the suburbs will be affected for the next two weeks as the BMC began repair work on a major water tunnel in Malad Saturday The 12-km tunnel supplies water to residents of areas between Malad and Dahisar The tunnel was damaged when a private developer was getting a borewell dug for a project A major technical fault has cropped up in the water supply tunnel of BMC between Malad reservoirMalad (East) to Liberty Garden in Malad (West) Repair work will take 16 days Some areas will face water cuts?
