With the announcement of Draupadi Murmo in the presidential election, the game has begun, how will Yashwant Sinha fail

Former Jharkhand Governor Murmo, 64, will present her candidacy on Friday in the presence of other top leaders including Prime Minister Modi, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh and Federal Home Minister Amit Shah. During the nomination, two senior ministers of the state government will be present as representatives of Governor Biju Janata Dal (BJD) in Odisha. The BJD party supported Murmu’s candidacy.

Why the NDA will be happy even before the elections

The NDA is expected to get more than 52 percent of the total votes after the BJD party announced its support for Mormo. The total votes in the presidential election reached 10,86,431 votes. Now it is expected that 5,67,000 votes will be registered in the NDA account. It also includes 308,000 votes of MPs from the BJP and its allies. The BJD party has a total of 32,000 electoral votes, which is 2.9 percent of the total votes. This vote increased with the support of the Yemeni Congress.

The BJP expects the NDA candidate to get the support of some regional parties like All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) apart from the YSR Congress. After the recent Rajya Sabha membership elections, the total BJP strength in the upper house rose to 92 members, while it has 301 members in the Lok Sabha. The BJP’s resounding victory in the recent lower house elections in four states, including Uttar Pradesh, also boosted the NDA candidate’s chances of winning. The voting value of MLAs in Uttar Pradesh is the highest as compared to any other state.

However, the number of NDA MLAs in this election is less compared to the 2017 presidential election. But the number of their MPs has increased. However, the BJP on Tuesday surprised everyone by announcing the name of former Jharkhand Governor Murmo as its presidential candidate. If Murmu wins the election, she will replace Ramnath Kovind.

As per the latest figures, the BJP has 393 members out of a total of 776 members in both houses of Parliament. These do not include the four appointed members of the Rajya Sabha as they cannot vote in the presidential election. Apart from 21 MPs from Janata Dal (United), the BJP candidate reaches a stronger position if the number of MPs from Rashtriya Lok Janshakti, Abna Dal, North East Region and allies are added.

The voting value of the Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha members is 700. There are a total of 4,033 MLAs in the states. The voting for these MLAs is determined by state. The final voter list will be announced after the by-election results for the three Lok Sabha seats and 16 Rajya Sabha seats.

Appointed members of Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha or state assemblies are not eligible to join the Electoral College and, therefore, are not entitled to participate in the elections. Likewise, members of legislatures are also not electors in presidential elections.
