Shiv Sena non-committal on Presidential nominee

Shiv Sena non-committal on Presidential nominee

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's choice for his President candidate is now Bihar Governor and former BJP MP Ram Nath Kovind, 71 that journalists and party members are hailing as a "masterstroke".

Certainly, Kovind's announcement came as a complete surprise to the Delhi press, although in Bihar the local media had speculated about the Governor's move to Rashtrapati Bhawan. His non-controversial tenure as the state's governor for three years shows that he believes in taking everyone along with him. Former BJP state chief Mangal Pandey also hailed Kovind's nomination."Kovind is a Dalit". All parties should rise above politic. He said he congratulated Kovind on his nomination.

Non-NDA parties like BJD, TRS and YSRCP have announced their support to the Dalit leader.

Alternate juror on Bill Cosby trial 'probably' would have voted to convict
However, the six alternates listened to all of the testimony, in case a juror had to be excused for illness or another reason. With the failure of the 12-person jury to reach a unanimous decision, a mistrial has been declared.

For its candidate to get elected, the BJP needs to get at least 50% +1 of the value of first preference votes; in the unlikely event that this does not happen, there will be subsequent rounds of voting during each of which the lowest polling candidate is removed.

The Constitution provides for a President who is bound by the advice of the Prime Minister and his Council of Ministers, and yet has the space to take a position on aberrations that s/he sees to be in violation of the document that binds and unites India. "Kovindji was the chief of RSS's Dalit branch".

Talking about his good equation with the BJP presidential pick, Mulayam said, "I have very old relations with him". So somewhere it is a political fight or contest.
