The system of parliament and election of India (Yuka)


Hello.I’m Yuka.

It has been 1 month since I came to India. Time flies.


In India, general election is being conducted now.


I looked up the system of parliament and election of india on the Internet because I didn’t know well about that although this is my 5th visit to India.

So, today I want to introduce that to you!




The system of parliament of India


Parliament of India is a bicameral legislature composed of a President and 2 houses: the Raija Sabha(upper house) and the Lok Sabha(lower house). A parliamentary cabinet system has been adopted in India and Prime Minister is elected from the ruling party of Lok Sabha.


India has both Prime Minister and President. But only Prime Minister holds political power.


The Raija Sabha has 245 members and they hold their seats for 6  years.

One third of the members are re-elected every 2 years.


The Lok Sabha has 545 members and they hold their seats for 5 years or until the parliament  is dissolved.

It is more powerful than the Raija Sabha when the parliament makes some decisions.

Now ruling party of it is Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) and the Prime Minister is Narendra Damodardas Modi.




What is the general election?


The election of the Lok Sabha is going on now in India.

This is called the general election.


It is one of the biggest scale election in the world.

The number of voter is about 900 million! That’s a lot!


General election is very important because the result of it has a big impact on future direction of politics and economy of India.


2019 Indian general election is being held in seven phases from 11 April to 19 May.

And the counting of votes will be conducted on 23 May.




About 2019 Indian general election


The thing which people are concerned with is whether BJP can keep their seats and Mr.Modi continue to be a Prime Minister.


In 2014 Indian general election, BJP won a majority of seats and became a ruling party.

Mr.Modi conducted a lot of reformation after he became a Prime Minister.


Public opinion toward over the past five years will be cleared after this election.
