14th Presidential Elections: Voting Starts

14th Presidential Elections: Voting Starts

With almost 70% of the electoral college votes, the NDA candidate for the president, Ram Nath Kovind is all set to become the 14 President of India.

He said that they should use the opportunity to take up important issues facing the country, a leader who attended the meeting said. He said the move had the approval of party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav. The Opposition parties have already chosen Mahatma Gandhi's grandson Gopalkrishna Gandhi as their joint nominee for vice-president.

The Voting for the Presidential Elections is now on in the Parliament and the State Assemblies.

With the numbers favouring Mr Kovind in Monday's presidential election, against the Opposition's candidate Meira Kumar, the result is a foregone conclusion as almost two-thirds of the electoral college is backing him, including some non-NDA parties. He underlined that 40 political parties have come out in support of Kovind which shows the growing clout of NDA.
