Today's vote will determine India's next vice president, and Jagdeep Dhankar, a candidate for the NDA, is predicted to win on the strength of the BJP. Margaret Alva of the opposition seemed to be running a very long way behind.
Jagdeep Dhankhar, who is most known for serving as Bengal's former governor, can expect 527 votes, significantly more than the 372 needed to win. It may account for 70% of all votes cast, which is 2% more than M. Venkaiah Naidu obtained.
780 MPs make up the Electoral College, including 245 in the Rajya Sabha and 543 in the Lok Sabha. Apart from the 36 Trinamool Congress MPs who elected to abstain from voting and the eight empty Upper House seats, 744 MPs are anticipated to cast ballots.
394 BJP lawmakers make up part of the 441 MPs in the NDA. The NDA candidate is also supported by five nominated members.
The Biju Janata Dal of Naveen Patnaik, the YSR Congress of Jaganmohan Reddy, the Bahujan Samaj Party of Mayawati, the Telugu Desam Party of Chandrababu Naidu, the Akali Dal, and the Eknath Shinde faction of the Shiv Sena are among the non-NDA groups who support Dhankhar. They have 81 MPs in total.
