Rajya Sabha Election 2022: Votes of 5 BJP MLAs ‘rejected’, who are the game changer MLAs in Rajasthan?
Voting will start at 9 am in Rajasthan Assembly
In a conversation with the media, the Chief Electoral Officer said that the voting for the four Rajya Sabha seats falling vacant on July 4, 2022 in Rajasthan will be held on June 10 from 9 am to 4 pm. Counting of votes will take place one hour after polling. The election process will be over on June 13.
Congress has more MLAs than BJP
Rajasthan BJP’s tension in the fence before voting increased when the votes of five MLAs were rejected in the mock drill, while one for the BJP entered the election fray with the aim of capturing two seats (one independent candidate). One vote is very valuable, because Congress has the upper hand in terms of number of MLAs.
The votes of these MLAs were rejected
The five BJP MLAs whose votes were rejected in the mock poll include experienced MLAs like Suryakanta Vyas, Pooram Choudhary and Harendra Ninama, who became MLA for the first time. After this, when the mock polling was done again, then two MLAs made a mistake. Mock polls can be held for the third time on Thursday.
The barricade of BJP-Congress MLAs
Let us tell you that the BJP has barricaded the MLAs in the resort of Jamdoli in Jaipur and the Congress in the hotel of Udaipur. Congress will train its MLAs to vote in Jaipur itself, while BJP is giving special training to the MLAs whose votes were rejected.
How are Rajya Sabha members elected?
It is noteworthy that to choose a Rajya Sabha MP, the common voter does not vote like in the Lok Sabha elections, but the Rajya Sabha MPs are elected by the votes of the MLAs elected by the voters. Legislators vote for this. For example, understand that if any MLA of Rajasthan votes for four seats falling vacant, then his vote is counted only once. Therefore, every party has to decide the priority for the vote of the MLAs, on the basis of which they cast their vote. During the voting, it is to be told who is in the first and second place in the list of their choice, then the candidate who gets more votes wins.
How are votes rejected in Rajya Sabha elections?
Let us tell you that in the voting for Rajya Sabha MP, a violet colored ink pen is kept by the Election Commission, through which voting has to be done. In this case, if another ink is used, the vote is rejected. Along with this, in Rajya Sabha, if the MLA casts his vote by showing a representative of his party or if the vote is shown to the MLA of another party, then that vote also gets rejected.
Calculation of votes in Rajasthan Rajya Sabha elections 2022
Let us tell you that there are 200 MLAs in Rajasthan. Voting is to be held for four Rajya Sabha seats. 41 votes are required for each seat. In Rajasthan Congress has 108, BJP 71, RLP 3, BTP 2, CPI 2, RLD 1 and Independent 13. According to 41 MLAs, Congress needs 123 MLAs to win three seats and BJP needs 82 MLAs to win two seats.
The screw will get stuck on the fourth seat like this
Let us tell you that in the Rajya Sabha Election 2022 Rajasthan, Congress has fielded Mukul Wasnik, Randeep Surjewala, Pramod Tiwari and BJP has fielded Ghanshyam Tiwari and supported independent Subhash Chandra. Congress will win two and BJP one seat easily, but the fourth seat will be screwed. To win the third seat for the Congress and the second seat for the BJP, besides the party MLAs, the votes of 15 MLAs and the BJP 11 are needed.
