VP Election: 75% of electorate to vote are crorepatis, says report

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

Lawmakers have begun to cast their votes to elect the 14 President of India. 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.

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. But the value of the vote of an MP does not vary - it is 708.

All the three major political parties have issued written instructions to their MPs and legislators to exercise their franchise on Monday. The value of an MLA's vote depends on the population of the state he or she represents.

Among them, a total of 993 members have serious criminal cases against them. "Hope the Electoral College picks the custodian of India's Constitution thoughtfully: Vote to uphold Constitutional Values of our Republic", party general secretary Sitaram Yechury said on Twitter. He only needs the support of a couple of neutral parties to sail through. In total, the voting will take place at 32 different polling stations across the nation.

The BJP is confident that a majority of the independent MLAs will support its candidate, Ram Nath Kovind. Senior Congress leader from Bihar Shakil Ahmed Khan is the representative of the opposition candidate who will monitor polls in UP.

Kovind holds a Bachelors degree in Commerce and LLB from Kanpur University.

Votes of 12 MLAs from the Congress and its allies were declared invalid in September 2016 because they had marked their preferences with a pen other than the one officially supplied by the poll staff.
