A total of 4,896 lawmakers - parliamentarians and legislators - are expected to vote in Monday's election.

Advani and party chief Amit Shah, Union Minister and Lok Jan Shakti Party leader Ram Vilas Paswan, the Shiv Sena's Anandrao Adsul, and also leaders from other allied parties. Modi, clad in a beige colour sleeveless jacket over a white kurta-pyjama, reached the Parliament premises early to vote on Monday, also the first day of the over three-week monsoon session of Parliament.
The contest for the President post is between National Democratic Alliance (NDA) nominee Ram Nath Kovind and candidate of several major opposition parties Meira Kumar, who was former Lok Sabha Speaker.

The CPI (M), which is backing Meira Kumar, urged voters, comprising MPs and MLAs, to pick the "custodian of the Constitution" thoughtfully.
According to ANI, the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), a former constituent of United Progressive Alliance (UPA), will support Meira Kumar in the Presidential polls. While Kumar has the support of 17 opposition parties, Kovind is set to sweep with almost 70% of electoral college votes, added the report. Six Tripura MLAs of the Trinamool Congress have chose to go with Kovind, despite party chief Mamata Banerjee pitching for Meira Kumar.
There are two independent MLAs in the house. "We have to get ready for 2019 to fight the BJP", he said.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
