The Lok Sabha elections are set for the people to choose the prime minister of India by voting their favorite party and its candidate. Lok Sabha is the lower house in India and is called the house of the people. After every 5 year, a fresh Lok Sabha election takes place. The next Lok Sabha election to choose the next prime minister of India will be held at 2019. There are some things which you need to know about the Lok Sabha Elections 2019. Here are 10 of them.
10. Mixed Reactions For Modi
There are several people who praise Modi highly for all his works and mending the relations with foreign countries whereas there are some people who are still not happy with the demonetization and the GST massacre. It is still very much in favor of Modi but a small mistake more and all can suddenly change.
9. New Alliance
There are some new alliances which we can see in the upcoming elections of 2019. One among them is the alliance of JD(S) with Mayawati’s Bahujan Samaj Party in Karnataka.
8. Modi VS Rahul Gandhi
This is the fight we are going to witness in the 2019 elections. Though the chances of winning are slightly inclined towards Modi but still Rahul Gandhi is a tough opponent to beat as there may be some tricks in his sleeves which he may unfold later.
7. Rumors of Early Elections
There rumors that the Lok Sabha elections of 2019 can occur earlier. This may be a truth as BJP may have planned something to trick other parties. But mostly there is no hard evidence to prove that they are bringing the elections early.
6. The elections will be tough for BJP this time
Till now they are looking like the clear winners but the BJP too know in their mind that the 2019 elections will not be a walk in the park. Their allies like Shiv Sena are parting ways with them and even the smaller parties like TDP, HAM. And RLSP are thinking about other options. So, certainly a hard time for BJP.
5. The Exit Poll:
This poll is done just after the elections. It is basically on the basis of the voters mentioning their favorite candidates and is just a basic prediction. It can certainly change later. This is also a gauge like the opinion polling but more certain.
4. Opinion Polling:
There are various media channels who like to take the opinion of people before the election so that they can gauge the upcoming winner. They combine the public reaction with the previous results and set an opinion poll for the people to see. A lot of such opinion polls are out. You can certainly check them.
3. The process of choosing the Prime Minister:
Any party which manages to control 273 seats will win the election and form its government. They can win by themselves or they can also win by an alliance. The announcement of the prime ministerial candidate by the parties can be done before the election or they can even do it after winning the elections. But it is for sure that the official party will be selecting the prime minister.
2. Parties Taking Part:
The major parties which will be taking part in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections are
- BJP ( Bhartiya Janata Party )
- INC ( Indian National Congress )
- AAP ( Aam Aadmi Party )
- TDP ( Telugu Desam Party )
- BSP ( Bahujan Samaj Party )
Other than this some alliances can be seen there too like the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and the United Progressive Alliance (UPA).
