On ‘One-nation one-election’, Centre forms Ram Nath Kovind-headed committee to explore possibility

However, one-nation, one-election would require a constitutional amendment and then state assembly approval.

One-nation one-election: The Centre reportedly established a committee led by former president Ram Nath Kovind to examine the viability of the much-discussed “one nation, one election”

The development occurs a day after the government announced a special session of Parliament from September 18 to 22 with an undisclosed agenda.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has persistently advocated for simultaneous Lok Sabha and state assembly elections over the years, and the decision to charge President Kovind with investigating it demonstrates the government’s sincerity as a number of elections approach.

Five states will hold assembly elections in November and December, followed by Lok Sabha elections in May and June of the following year.

As soon as the announcement was made, rumours began to circulate regarding the agenda for the five-day session. The dissolution of the current Parliament and the proclamation of early Lok Sabha elections were rumoured to be on the agenda. This decision, however, can be made by a cabinet decision; therefore, a special session of Parliament is not required if early Lok Sabha elections are indeed on the agenda. However, as part of the BJP government’s strategy, it may present its accomplishments over the past five years and explain to the people, via a parliamentary session, why it is necessary to conduct snap elections in addition to the state elections scheduled for this year.

However, one-nation, one-election would require a constitutional amendment and then state assembly approval. It has occurred four times in the 1950s and 1960s, but India has fewer states and a smaller population that is eligible to vote.
