India follows a parliamentary democratic system, and elections are held regularly to determine the composition of the Indian Parliament as well as state legislative assemblies. Here is an overview of the electoral process and major elections in India: Lok Sabha Elections: Lok Sabha is the lower house of the Indian Parliament, and Lok Sabha elections are held every five years to elect its members. The Lok Sabha consists of 543 members, known as Members of Parliament (MPs), who are elected from various constituencies across the country. The electoral system used is first-past-the-post, where the candidate receiving the highest number of votes in each constituency is elected as the representative for that constituency. Rajya Sabha Elections: Rajya Sabha is the upper house of the Indian Parliament, and its members are not directly elected by the public. Rajya Sabha members are elected by the elected members of the State Legislative Assemblies through a proportional representation system. State Legislative Assembly Elections: Each state in India has its own legislative assembly, and elections are held regularly to determine the composition of these assemblies. The number of seats and the electoral systems may vary across states. Members of State Legislative Assemblies (MLAs) are elected through the first-past-the-post system in single-member constituencies or through proportional representation in multi-member constituencies. Panchayat and Municipal Elections: Local government elections, known as Panchayat elections for rural areas and Municipal elections for urban areas, are held periodically. These elections determine the composition of local bodies such as Gram Panchayats, Municipal Corporations, and Municipal Councils. The electoral systems for these elections may vary depending on the state and the specific local body.
