  • 1,581 MPs with criminal background will elect next President of India

According to the Election Commission, since the technology for proportional election and single transferable vote is yet to be developed in the electronic voting machines, the presidential election is taking place through ballot papers. It will begin at 10 am and close at 5 pm.

At the outset, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, LoP Narasingha Mishra and BJP's Rourkela MLA Dilip Ray have already casted their votes for their respective candidates so far.

Rai also said RJD MLA from Nawada Rajballabh Yadav and CPI (ML) MLA Satyadeo Ram, both in jail, would participate in the election with permission from court.

Ram Nath Kovind, NDA's candidate for 2017 Presidential candidate was born on 1 October 1945 in Kanpur Dehat district, Uttar Pradesh.

Officially, two candidates Kovind of NDA and opposition's Meira Kumar are in fray, and one among them will be the 14 President of India. Incumbent President Pranab Mukherjee's term expires on July 24 and a new President has to take over on July 25. In total the country has 4120 MLAs and 776 parliamentarians whom they represent the over 1.2 billion people. All MPs have a fixed vote value of 708, decided based on a complex formula.

The Commission's statement said that five members of Legislative Assemblies were permitted to exercise their vote in Parliament and four MLAs to vote in other State Legislative Assemblies.

Polling will be held in the central hall of the Assembly.

The ruling Telugu Desam Party MLAs then cast their votes. So, 98 MLAs belonging to the DMK and its allies will vote for Meira Kumar.

The voters include 233 elected members of the Rajya Sabha, 543 of the Lok Sabha.

Battle for the post of President of India begins today.

Followed by Palaniswami, his cabinet colleagues, including Forest Minister Dindigul Srinivasan, Municipal Administration Minister S.P. Velumani, Milk and Dairy Development Minister Rajendra Balaji, Speaker P Dhanapal and Leader of Opposition M K Stalin cast their votes. Indicating their choice in any other manner would make their votes invalid, he added.
