Voting for presidential election ends in MP

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

In the last Mr.Kovind said that the Presidential post is being a party politics.

Though the poll result will be announced on July 20, it is expected that Kovind will emerge as victor as he has also support of non- NDA parties like All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK), Yuvajana Shramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP), Janata Dal- United (JD-U), Biju Janata Dal (BJD), Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) and independents. The counting of votes will take place on July 20 in New Delhi after all the ballot boxes have been brought from various state capitals. It will be only the second time that India has had a Dalit head of state. There are 126 MLAs in the State, 14 Lok Sabha MPs and seven Rajya Sabha MPs. The halfway mark is expected to be 549,442, but that will depend on the number of valid votes.

He said the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha have two vacancies each, while BJP MP Chedi Paswan did not have voting rights.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah were among the first to cast their votes. Her nomination, which followed Kovind's, was seen by many as the opposition's attempt to counter Modi's move to woo dalits.
