Who is going to be the next Prime Minister of India? Election Results 2019

Who is going to be the next Prime Minister of India – Election Results 2019

India, the world’s largest democracy had a 7-week long election process which ended a few days ago. 542 seats and 8000 candidates fighting for it. Counting starts tomorrow morning and by this time tomorrow, we will know Election Results and what people have decided. Whether people let Modi 2.0 starts or Rahul Gandhi Rules.

Indian voters are always capable of giving surprises. No matter who wins, the real winner will be India’s democracy. A day to celebrate India’s democracy.

Election Results 2019 – Vote Counting

Counting starts at 8 am IST and halfway through the counting process, we could see the trend and somewhat guess the winner. Winner of each constituency will also be declared tomorrow.

Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) and BJP led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) are the two largest pre-poll coalitions in this election. However, the state (regional) parties will play a big role in deciding the government formation. The regional parties which are not of any alliance will have the numbers to tilt the scales.

For the first time in a Lok Sabha elections, the results of Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) will be matched with VVPAT slips. VVPAT slips are generated by paper trail machines. Before announcing the final results, 5 randomly selected EVMs will be counted in each Assembly segment after EVM votes are counted. Results may be delayed by 3-4 hours due to VVPAT counting, says EC

The President’s role after the elections is very important as there is a huge chance of a hung verdict. There is no rule book for him. President Ram Kovind is most likely to invite the pre-poll largest alliance with the highest number of seats will get the first chance to prove the majority and form the government.

Two-fold jump in NRIs registering as voters: Govt and EC data

Two-fold jump in NRIs registering as voters: Govt and EC data

The issue of voting by NRIs in Indian elections is being debated again with the government moving a bill in the Lok Sabha to extend proxy voting rights to them on the lines of service voters.

The number of NRIs registering themselves as ‘overseas electors’ has seen a two-fold jump in the last three years, latest government and EC data show. The figure, however, is far too less when compared to the number of Indians living abroad and entitled to vote here.

The issue of voting by NRIs in Indian elections is being debated again with the government moving a bill in the Lok Sabha to extend proxy voting rights to them on the lines of service voters. The bill says the necessary provision of coming to India to cast ballot caused “hardship” to overseas electors.

As of now, non-resident Indians–essentially people living or working abroad who have not given up their Indian citizenship–can cast their vote in the constituencies they are registered in. This means that they first have to register themselves as voters and then take a long flight to India be present on election day.

The hesitation to spend money and make travel plans to vote in India is reflected in the data available with the Election Commission and the government on ‘overseas electors’. As on May 2012, there were 1,003,7761 NRIs, according to the report of the multi-agency ‘committee for exploring the feasibility of alternative options for voting by overseas electors’.

Quoting electoral roll data of 2014, the committee said 11,846 people were registered as ‘overseas electors’– 11,140 of them men and only 706 women. The number of registered ‘overseas electors’ saw a two-fold jump this year. According to a Lok Sabha question answered in writing by Minister of State for Law P P Chaudhary on December 15 in the ongoing Winter Session, a total of 24,348 people are ‘overseas electors’.

These include 22,428 men and 1,920 women. Though the chart has a column for transgenders, no one has registered. Interestingly, out of 24,348 overseas voters, 23,556 are from Kerala. Thirty-seven are from Delhi. According to the provisions of ‘Representation of the People Act (Amendment) Bill, 2017’ introduced by Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad in the Lower House, overseas Indians who are entitled to vote in India can now appoint a proxy voter to cast their votes. The person authorised as proxy has to be a different person in every election.
