seats/votes and whether a united Opposition can defeat the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate This is part 1 of the series In the Parliamentary form of democracy the president is the head of the state and the supreme commander of its defence forces He is elected by the representatives elected by the people which is the MPs and the MLAs The president is indirectly elected and hence has lesser powers than the prime minister who is elected directly by the people Rashtrapati Bhavan Reuters Electoral college and a complex formula The President of India is elected by an electoral college comprising of: The calculation of votes for the presidential elections are done using an important formula and steps as follows: Value of vote of an MLA = Total Population of the state as per 1971 Census Total number of elected members of the Legislative Assembly × 1000 Total Value of votes of all MLAs of a State Assembly = Value of vote of an MLA × No of elective seats in the Assembly Total Value of votes of all MLAs across 31 States = Sum of Total Value of votes of all MLAs of the 31 State Assemblies= 549474 Value of vote of MP = Total Value of votes of all MLAs (549474) Total number of elected members of Parliament (776) =708 Total Value of votes of all MPs = Value of a vote of an MP × Total No of MPs = 549408 Total Value of Votes of Electoral College = Total Value of votes of all MLAs + Total Value of votes of all MPs =549474 + 549408 = 1098882 What’s the voting process like Nominated members of the Lok Sabha as well as the Rajya Sabha are not allowed to vote in the presidential election Voting is done through a secret ballot and members are not bound by any party whip The value of the votes of MLAs differs from state to state while the value of the votes of MPs is fixed An equal weightage is given to votes of MPs and MLAs (50 percent each) in the overall electoral college The election is held in accordance with the system of proportional representation by means of a single transferable vote Each elector/voter has to mark preferences for the candidates contesting the election by placing the figures 1 2 3 and so on against the names of the candidates in the order of his/her preference There can be as many preferences as the number of candidates contesting the election It is compulsory to mark the first preference for the vote to be considered as valid Marking other preferences is optional A candidate requires "50 percent of valid votes polled +1" (quota) of the first preference votes cast to win an election In case no candidate gets the quota then the candidate getting the lowest number of first preference votes is excluded This candidate’s second preference votes are then distributed among the remaining candidates This process of exclusion and elimination is repeated till a candidate gets the required quota In case even after the exclusion of candidates receiving the lowest number of votes no candidate secures the requisite quota and ultimately one candidate remains as the lone continuing candidate he is declared elected What’s rationale behind adopting this process The Constitution provides two reasons for adopting the above formulae: Hence the objective of this complex calculation method is to ensure that the President of India is an equal representative of the states as well as the Union of India This is in line with the spirit of the Constitution of India which is "neither purely federal nor purely unitary in character" and built on the principles of co-operative federalism One man one vote vs current formula One wonders why the architects of our Constitution chose this compounded procedure for the valuation of votes of electors They could have simply used "one man one vote" principle After all the size of a Legislative Assembly is related to the size of the population of the state This would have also ensured that the underlying principle of proportional representation which is to prevent exclusion of minorities from the benefits of the state is adhered to The "one man one vote" principle suffers from shortcomings especially with respect to the spirit behind the elections for the head of a state The number of members in state legislative assemblies is far higher in comparison to the members of Parliament and hence parity between states and the Union cannot be established The Constitution provides that there cannot be more than one MLA for every 75000 of the population It doesn’t actually lay down that "x" number of people must necessarily be represented by one MLA It also limits the maximum size of a Legislative Assembly to 500 Both these provisions mean that uniformity between states cannot be established by "one man one vote" method An MLA represents different sizes of the population in different states for example 147 lakh in Odisha 149 lakh in undivided Andhra 208 lakhs in Uttar Pradesh etc based on the 1971 census Heavily populated states play a key role The top five Indian states on the basis of population (Uttar Pradesh Maharashtra Bihar West Bengal and Tamil Nadu) account for 48 percent of the total Electoral College votes of MLAs and 45 percent of total votes of MPs The BJP is in power in two of these states while anti-BJP parties rule the other two The AIADMK which is the ruling party in Tamil Nadu is currently facing a leadership crisis While the Constitution has taken utmost care to ensure that the voice of the minority is heard it is the principle of natural justice that those states which have high population play a bigger role in the election of the president The fact that there could be different parties in the majority in the Lok Sabha and in the Legislative Assembly from the state plays a balancing act To sum it up the complexity of the method and the diversity of the Indian political system makes the presidential elections an exciting contest Here’s a list of all Indian states and the number of Legislative Assembly seats and the value of an MLA’s vote from that particular: S No Name of the State No of Legislative Assembly seats Value of the vote of each MLA Total value of votes for the States 1 Andhra Pradesh

the series we will see how different parties and blocks are stacked up in various bodies for these elections Madrid: Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez inspired Barcelona to what will surely be the first part of a domestic double this season as they thrashed Sevilla 5-0 on Saturday to win the Copa del Rey Barcelona players pose with the trophy after winning the Copa del Rey final against Sevilla at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium in Madrid Messi had scored once and Suarez twice before even the half-time whistle had blown at the Wanda Metropolitano with the sublime Andres Iniesta and Philippe Coutinho later compounding Sevilla’s humiliation Barca’s exhilarating display earns them their 30th triumph in this competition and fourth in a row having reached the final in each of the last five years But despite hugs and high-fives at the end the real celebrations will be put on ice until next Sunday when victory over Deportivo La Coruna will confirm Ernesto Valverde’s side as La Liga champions too Even a clean sweep of the domestic trophies perhaps polished by La Liga’s first-ever unbeaten season will not eradicate the lingering disappointment from Barca’s Champions League exit to Roma But this performance as easy on the eye as it was emphatic will certainly serve as a counter-point to those that believe Valverde’s team have been efficient rather than exciting this season and overly reliant on Messi "Winning the Cup does not hide the disappointment in Rome" Suarez said after the match "But at the beginning of the season anyone would have signed for a double" Messi was of course superb again on Saturday but this was not a one-man show Suarez scored his 31st and 32nd goals of the season while Iniesta delivered one of those effortless displays in which at times he was virtually unplayable If this is to be the 33-year-old’s last Barca final before departing for China it was a fitting farewell with only goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen absent from the 10-man huddle that engulfed the Spaniard following his shimmying fourth By the time Coutinho converted his penalty in the 69th minute Barca were simply sharing the goals around For Sevilla defeat was always the most likely scenario but this was a whitewash Sitting eighth in La Liga even Europa League qualification now looks an outside bet and there may be repercussions for coach Vincenzo Montella and some of his players in the summer "Barcelona has been superior in everything they have extra-terrestrial players" Montella said "I’m very sorry for the fans who have been fantastic sorry for the disappointments I have seen crying in the dressing room but tomorrow we have to work" Amid ongoing political unrest between Catalonia and the Spanish government Barca fans whistled during the national anthem before kick-off with king Felipe VI watching on Their jeers however were drowned out by the chants of Sevilla supporters When the first goal arrived it came from a long Cillessen punt downfield as Coutinho found himself free behind the Sevilla backline and squared for Suarez to stab home Iniesta hit the bar with a rasping shot from distance and soon they were two up Jordi Alba keeping the ball alive with a backheel that Messi slammed into the roof of the net Messi could have had a second were it not for an incorrect offside call and then a cynical foul by Sergio Escudero for which he was lucky only to receive a yellow card Both mattered little however as Messi set Suarez free in the 41st minute and the Uruguayan slid a third under David Soria It was another one-two with Messi again the pivot that released Iniesta in the second half as the midfielder’s dummy-shot left Soria scrambling and an open net for the midfielder to finish into Resigned to their fate Sevilla’s fans sang to the end even as Coutinho despatched a penalty to make it five after the ball had struck Clement Lenglet on the arm All that was left was for Iniesta’s substitution to be given a standing ovation before the captain hoisted the trophy perhaps for the final time there will soon be many dog-eared copies of Guy Stuff hidden in bedrooms around America.Patna: a heartland of pro-independence
