Left parties to meet over Presidential elections issue

All Left Parties are meeting here today to discuss the issue of Presidential elections.

New Delhi, May 16 : All Left Parties are meeting here today to discuss the issue of Presidential elections.

The four broad parameters suggested by the Left leaders included no second term for Dr. Kalam, no elevation for Vice-President Bhairon Singh Shekhawat, candidate to be a person with political background and no endorsement to any candidate proposed by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

BJP has been mulling over the names of Vice President Bhairon Singh Shekhawat as a possible candidate.

The term of incumbent President A.P.J Abdul Kalam ends on July 24. So far, the outgoing President has not shown direct willingness for a second term.

Kalam was elected as president during the former NDA regime, thrown out by the Congress-led coalition in May 2004.

The President is elected by an electoral college consisting of the elected members of both houses of the Parliament and the State Legislative Assemblies.

Voting takes place by secret ballot and uses the Single Transferable Vote method of proportional representation.
