A retired general holds the key to the presidential run-off
India’s electoral system, which produces genuine leaders, must be designed for the country’s long-term growth
The idea of One Nation, One Election seems outlandish since the architecture of the election process doesn’t allow much space for it
Simultaneous elections will lead to the mixing of national and state-level issues, which does not serve the electorate’s best interests
Is One Nation, One Election a threat to federalism? Will it have an impact on the power dynamics between the Centre and the states? Will it curtail the power of state assemblies and chief ministers?
This move is questionable as it assumes, or even aspires, that people vote the same way in state and national elections
