One Nation, One Election - President of IndiaThe Honorable President of India, Mr. Ramnath Kovind has proposed a system of "one Nation One election'. Though this method has been proposed by many political leaders in past, it is the first time The President of India has done the same. He asked all political leaders to come to a common opinion on this proposal. He gave his speech addressing the two houses (Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha) together for the first time. There was a huge applause by all the members when he set out this proposal.
With this method, the Lok Sabha elections and the assembly elections for respective states are held once together. There are continuous elections held throughout India in one place or another. This is costing a lot of funds, resources, and human effort. With these continuous elections, there are always hurdles to the development. With one nation, one election policy these deficits can be overcome in a single go. Election Commission (EC) of India has also announced they can get more EVM's (Electronic Voting Machines) ready by this year-end if this bill is passed.
If this process really happens, we will all witness a new history in Indian Politics.
