Vice-President Election: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has announced its support to the joint opposition candidate Margaret Alva in the country’s vice-presidential elections to be held on August 6. AAP spokesperson and Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Singh said on Wednesday that the party’s political affairs committee, headed by national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, in a meeting “unanimously” decided to support Alva. Talking to reporters after the meeting, Singh said that all the Rajya Sabha members of the party will vote for the joint opposition candidate Margaret Alva on August 6.

On the other hand, Mayawati decided to support the NDA candidate.

In the Vice Presidential election, BSP President Mayawati has given her support to the NDA candidate Jagdeep Dhankhar, giving a jolt to the opposition. He made a formal announcement of this in a series of tweets on Wednesday. Mayawati tweeted and wrote that keeping in mind the wider public interest and my campaign in the election for the post of Vice President, I have decided to extend my support to Jagdeep Dhankhar and I am making a formal announcement today. Mayawati wrote in another tweet, “It is well known that due to the lack of consensus between the power and the opposition in the election for the post of President of the country, the election was finally held for it. Now due to the same situation, the election for the post of Vice President will also be held on 6th August.

This is how the election of the Vice President happens

The election of the Vice-President is done indirectly just like the election of the President. There is no direct participation of the public in this. It is voted by 790 members of both the houses of the Parliament. The difference is that the members nominated by the President do not vote in the presidential election, but in the election of the Vice-President, these members also vote. The process of voting takes place under the Electoral College.
