ELECTION



Rehatkan minda sekejap, sebelum menjelangnya demam pilihanraya kecil di-DUN Penanti.

India begins marathon vote ... from the snowbound Chinese border to holy Ganges towns, Indians began voting in a month-long general election yesterday.

Let's see the numbers,symbols,records,fact and figure about Indian election:-

>> BIG NUMBERS
Around 714 million people are eligible to vote in the world's biggest democratic exercise.More than 800,000 polling stations will be set up for a five-phased vote over several weeks,watched over by 2.1 million security personnel.

>> FROM ELEPHANTS TO COMPUTERS
Arround 1.1 million electronic voting machines will be used across the nation.These were first introduced for a general election in 2004,when millions of illiterate voters pressed a button next to a symbol of the party their choice.Ballot boxes were also used-some were transported by elephants and camels to remote voters.

>> SYMBOLS
Parties can be recognised by their symbols.These range from the mainstream,such as elephant,a hand,or a hammer,sickle and star,to the predictable,such as a bicycle,a bow and arrow,a pair of spectacles or a telephone.In 2004,the election commission published a list of acceptables symbols that can be used by minor parties.These including bangles,a cricketer,a coat hanger and a ceilling fan.

>> THE LAW AND POLITICS
Arround a quarter of the 543 lower house elected MPs had criminal cases pending againts them in 2004.More than half of the cases were for serious offences including murder,rape and large scale of corruption.

>> YOUNG AND OLD
In a parliment populated largely by ageing MPs,there are many contenders for the oldest of them all.A 94 year old took that prize in 2004 elctions.The youngest was 26

>> SMALLEST
In the world's largest democracy,spare a thought for polling station No 29 (Dharampur) in Arunachal Pradesh state.It had just one 1 voter in 2004.

>> SHORTEST
The shortest government in Indian history was formed in 1996.It lasted 13 only days -REUTERS
