Vice-Presidential Elections: Jagdeep Dhankhar's victory is certain, know how?

New Delhi: India is set to get a new Vice President today. Voting for this is also today and the results will also be announced today. Former West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar is the candidate from the NDA, while the opposition has fielded Margaret Alva. But, like the presidential election, this time too, the contest looks one-sided. In terms of statistics, Jagdeep Dhankhar is leading in this race. On behalf of the opposition, Margaret Alva is definitely contesting the election, but she does not appear to be in the competition of Dhankhar.

Let us know that the election of the Vice President means a lot in the country's democracy. How important this office is can be understood as if in the absence of the President, it is the Vice President who has to discharge all the responsibilities. At the same time, in terms of office, the Vice President is considered to be bigger than the Prime Minister. In such a situation, whoever holds this position, it is necessary to complete many responsibilities and duties. In terms of statistics, MPs from the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha vote in the election of the Vice President. Members who are nominated also have the right to vote. The total number of votes is 788. It has 543 Lok Sabha votes and 243 upper house votes. One needs at least 394 votes to win the vice presidential election. Whoever achieves this figure, victory is confirmed.

This election counts one vote of each MP. But, the game remains that the MP has to set priority based on his choice. Now, based on this process, NDA candidate Jagdeep Dhankhar is already showing 395 votes in his account, that is, he already has more votes in his favour than he needs to win. That is why Jagdeep Dhankhar's victory in the election is considered to be certain. At present, the BJP has 303 MPs in the Lok Sabha and 93 MPs in the Rajya Sabha, in such a situation, the number of BJP MPs (396) is looking enough to give Dhankhar a victory in the vice-presidential election.
