New Delhi, Jnn. presidential election (President Election 2022) Eventually, the ruling party and the opposition declared their candidates. The NDA’s central leadership on Tuesday appointed former Jharkhand governor and former Odisha minister Draupadi Murmu. (Draupadi Murmu) As the NDA’s candidate for the upcoming Presidential Election 2022, the opposition has named Yashwant Sinha, a former BJP leader and former Union Minister. The similarity between the two is that both belong to Jharkhand and there was no discussion of both the names beforehand. Now it remains to be seen for whom the road to Raisina Hills opens on July 21 – for Draupadi Murmu or for Yashwant Sinha. Let’s know what is the math of votes in the presidential election? What is the position of the opposition? What is NDA’s equation?
This is the math of votes in the presidential election
– MLAs, Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha members vote in the presidential election
A total of 4,809 MPs and MLAs will vote in the election. Of these, there will be 776 MPs (elected members of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha) and 4,033 MLAs.
The value of votes of MPs and MLAs is different. Priority is decided by the voter for several candidates in a single vote.
– The value of the total vote of the MPs is 5,43,200, the value of one vote is 700
The value of the vote of a Member of Parliament is determined by dividing the value of the votes of all the MLAs by the total number of MPs.
– The value of total votes of MLAs is 5,43,231
– 208 is the value of vote of an MLA of Uttar Pradesh, which is the highest among the states
– 7 is the value of vote of an MLA of Sikkim, this is the lowest vote value
position of opposition
The Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) has around 2,59,800 votes. In this, the Congress has the maximum number of 1,45,000 votes.
Talking about non-UPA opposition parties, they have about 2,92,800 votes. The opposition parties combined have over 5,52,000 votes.
Due to the recently held Rajya Sabha elections, there may be a slight change in the number of votes of the parties, but it will not be enough to affect the election in a big way.
this is the equation
The BJP-led National Democratic Alliance has 5,26,420 votes, a little less than fifty percent of the total 10.86 lakh votes.
In such a situation, the NDA will have to take the support of any party. In which YSR Congress and Biju Janata Dal are there.
In the past, YSR Congress chief Jaganmohan and BJD chief Naveen Patnaik have met PM Narendra Modi in Delhi.
Both the parties had supported the NDA candidate Ram Nath Kovind in the year 2017.
NDA is short of about 13,000 votes to win the presidential election. BJD has more than 31 thousand votes while YSR Congress has more than 43,000 votes. Naturally, the support of any one of these will suffice for the NDA.
