Want to know how India will get its 14th President? Here's a primer
Polling is underway in Parliament and state assemblies for electing the 14th President of the country and among the first ones to cast their votes was Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The ballot papers and boxes have also arrived and have been kept in the strong room.
No mobile phone or camera will be allowed inside the central hall during the polling, Deka said. Incumbent President Pranab Mukherjee's term expires on July 24 and a new President has to take over on July 25. The pen will be taken back by the polling staff once the voting is done and the legislator exits the voting chamber.
"Before entering the voting chamber, a polling staff will collect personal pens from the voters and hand over the special pen to mark their vote on the ballot paper", an EC spokesperson said.
He also served Member of Parliament (Rajya Sabha) for 12 years (1994-2006). They can not use their own pens to vote and were given unique serial-numbered special pens with violet ink.
Rest of this, The Association for Democratic Reforms and National Election Watch said this, in light of the examination of self-sworn oaths of 4,852 of 4,896 MPs and MLAs.
The Election Commission has appointed 33 observers to conduct the election. Both the candidates as well as leaders of ruling parties and oppositions are campaigning across the country seeking votes from the state legislatures and parliamentarians.
Further, Dinesh Trivedi, former Union Railway Minister, Yogi Adityanath, Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh are among the 41 Lok Sabha Members of Parliament who have been given permission to vote in their states by the EC for the Monday polls.
While announcing the schedule of the election, the poll panel had made it clear that use of any other pen could lead to the invalidation of the vote at the time of counting under the Presidential and Vice Presidential Elections Rules, 1974.
