VP Election: 75% of electorate to vote are crorepatis, says report

1,581 MPs with criminal background will elect next President of India

Manohar Parrikar, Chief Minister of Goa and former Union Defence Minister, Derek O'Brien, spokesperson, Trinamool Congress, and Mukul Roy are among the 14 Rajya Sabha Members of Parliament who have been given permission by the Election Commission to vote in their respective states instead of casting their ballot in Parliament for the Presidential elections scheduled for Monday.

"184 (34 percent) out of 543 Lok Sabha MPs, 44 (19 percent) out of 231 Rajya Sabha MPs and 1,353 (33 percent) out of 4,078 MLAs analysed from all states have declared criminal cases against themselves", the ADR said in a report.

The value of vote of an MP is fixed at 708 in India, which is calculated by dividing the total value of all MLAs' votes of the country (5,49,474) by the number of MPs of both the houses (776).

All the three major political parties have issued written instructions to their MPs and legislators to exercise their franchise on Monday.

Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh assured Kumar that the Himachal Congress Legislature Party (CLP) would stand behind her as she was the "most deserving candidate" for the post of president.


PM Narendra Modi casts his vote at Parliament for Presidential Polls 2017. For example, Uttar Pradesh legislators have the highest vote value while MLAs from Sikkim and Manipur have a low vote value. He only needs the support of a couple of neutral parties to sail through.

“No mobile phone or camera will be allowed inside the central hall during the polling, ” Deka said. The nation will get its new President on Thursday. Considering the scenario, the NDA candidate has the advantage from the opposition's joint candidate, however neither the NDA nor the UPA enjoys simple majority at its own.

If elected, 71-year-old Kovind will be the second Dalit to become President after K.R. Narayanan, who was the 10th President.

The pens have been introduced following a controversy during voting in the Rajya Sabha polls in Haryana in September 2016.
