Our next President is going to be elected on Monday

Officials of the Election Commission of India oversee preparations at Vidhana Soudha in Bengaluru on Saturday ahead of the Presidential election. DH

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and his Goa counterpart Manohar Parrikar are among 55 MPs who will vote in their state assemblies instead of Parliament House for the presidential election tomorrow, an Election Commission document says. Hence, the colour of ballot papers will help the returning officer count votes based on the value.

“No mobile phone or camera will be allowed inside the central hall during the polling, ” Deka said. "The special pen will have to be returned to the polling staff. Voting by using any other pen will be held invalid (under Rule 31 (1) (d) of the Presidential and Vice Presidential Elections Rules 1974)", an official was quoted as saying by the Times of India.

A special pen, with special ink will be given to the MPs and MLAs and they will be required to mark their preference from among both candidates for the country's top post.

The EC has also prepared posters on dos and don'ts at the polling centre.

A majority of the MPs and MLAs who will vote in next week's presidential polls are crorepatis, accounting for 75 per cent of the total votes, says a report.

The special pens are being used for the first time in the presidential election, in which National Democratic Alliance's Ram Nath Kovind will compete against United Progressive Alliance's Meira Kumar.

The counting of votes will be done in Parliament on July 20 and the new President will be sworn into office on July 25.

The Election Commission has appointed 33 observers to conduct the election. The ruling NDA (BJP, SHS, TDP, LJSP, SAD, RLSP, AD, GFP, MGP, AINRC, JKPDP, NPF, NPP, PMK, SDF, SWP) has 237,888 in Lok Sabha and 49,560 votes in Rajya Sabha and in state assemblies it has 239,923 votes in its kitty. Nominated members of the Rajya Sabha are not eligible.

As many as 233 elected members of the Rajya Sabha, 543 members from the Lok Sabha and 4,120 MLAs from the state Assemblies comprise the electors.
