Kovind’s victory is sure!
Let us know that President Pranab Mukherjee’s tenure ends on July 24, next day i.e. assuming the new president on 25th July. Seeing the political equations, the victory of NDA candidate Ramnath Kovind is being considered as true in this election.
Both the candidates, Ramnath Kovind and Meira Kumar, come from the Dalit community in the race for presidential elections and they have worked hard to get the support of the legislators roaming around the country. Talking to the statistics, the former governor of Bihar, Kovind, is looking strong, because he has the support of opposition parties like JDU and Biju Janata Dal (BJD) besides the NDA. Here, the JDU holds a total of 1.91 percent of electoral board, while BJD has 2.99 percent of the votes. Apart from this, a Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) 2% in Telangana, a faction of All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) (5.39%) and YSR Congress (1.53%) also announced to vote in favor of Kovind is.
Apart from preparing Kovind as a candidate, the differences between Opposition parties were also exposed, as JD (U) announced the support of Kovind in support of its constituents-Congress and RJD-RJD in Bihar. Here, Meera Kumar has the support of 17 main opposition parties including the Congress, which includes the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) of Delhi.
The value of every MP’s vote in the presidential election is 708, while the votes of the legislators will be according to the population of their states, such as the vote of a legislator of Uttar Pradesh 208, while the legislator of a less populous state like Arunachal The vote of 8 votes is 8. In such a situation, Kovind is likely to get more than 63% of the electoral board’s total of 10,98,903 votes.
However, no party has issued whip so far for presidential elections here. In such a scenario, former Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar has appealed to voters to vote ‘listening to their conscience’.
