My serious doubt about declaration of result after a secret ballot.Dear Members,
I have a serious doubt about declaration of result after a secret ballot. After conductiog the election through the ecret ballot, how the election results are declared? Is it just to announce the name of the candidate winning the election or to announce the names of all candidates with the number of votes they received? What is the general practice being followed/should be followed?
For E.g. Mr Alfa, Mr Bravo and Mr Charlie are the candidates contesting the election conducted through secret ballot. Mr. Charlie won the election with maximum votes. Once the election is over, how the result should be announced? I have given two options below. Choose the correct option and explain it.
(1) Mr. Charlie won the election.
Total votes polled - 200
Mr. Charlie 101 votes and declared as elected
Mr. Alfa - 68 votes
Mr. Bravo - 31 votes.
