...Whilst the tenure of a democratically elected government comes to an end, political parties in Pakistan are gearing up for elections. Almost all significant parties have ruled the country one way or the other during the past five years. Perhaps, Elections 2013 are going to take place at the most critical time in the history of country. On the verge of selling their story to the public, the anti-status quo parties will have to produce a revolutionary and out of the box solutions to people’s problems, or to befool the masses yet once more.
The energetic and aggressive media in its present capacity remains a major factor to influence minds. Still there is a big question mark on whether media can play their role positively and constructively. At the moment, media is the only institution which has the power to make or break the future of the country.
Now when elections are just around the corner, any possible equation hinting at the postponement of elections is out of questions. Several attempts have been made and number of rumors has been floating but recent developments suggest that any such effort to derail the electoral system will not be supported by establishment.
It is believed that three major factors will decide the outcome of the upcoming elections. First and foremost is an international issue, i.e. withdrawal of US and ISAF troops from Afghanistan. Three major parties (PPP, PML (N) and PTI)...
Before students become SSC Officers, election is the first thing to be ascertained. A Student’s Supreme Council election is a decision making process by which the whole collegiate population chooses their student candidate to hold or govern the Student’s Supreme Council. The election system must be sufficiently robust to withstand a variety of fraudulent behaviors and must be sufficiently transparent and comprehensible that voters and candidates can accept the results of an election. Unsurprisingly, history is littered with examples of elections having problems while ballot-based election is used. A “ballot-based voting system” is a paper-based voting systems originated as a system where votes are casted and counted manually and through board tallies based on screened vote paper ballots. When tasks were decentralized and counted manually, speculations may have a large possibility to exist and some student candidate questioning the truimph of the rival candidates. Another disadvantage that may result to would be a large time consumed on counting and tallying of votes.
It is possible to create Election System that by their very nature, are secure, reliable and trustworthy.
As the researchers reviewed and analyzed the existing procedures of Northeastern College Student’s Supreme Council Elections in Villasis, Santiago City and with the information...
...The Election Process
2010 General Election
The last UK General Election was held on 6th May 2010. No single party won an overall majority of the 650 House of Commons seats. The conservatives won 305 seats, representing 10.7 million votes (36%). Labour won 258 seats, representing 8.6 million votes (29%). The Liberal Democrats won 57 seats, representing 6.8 million votes (23%).
The Liberal Democrats and The Conservatives joined together to make a coalition because no one had enough votes to win on their own.
The Process of a General Election
Fixed Term Parliament Act was passed on 15 September 2011, meaning that General Elections are now held on the first Thursday in May every five years.
The date of the next general election is set at 7 May 2015.
There are two situations in which a General Election will be called earlier than at five intervals.
(i) A motion of no confidence has been passed by the House of Commons against the Government and 14 days has passed without the House of Commons passing a confidence motion in any newly formed Government; or
(ii) A motion for a General Election is agreed by two thirds of the total number of MP’s in the House of Commons (currently 434 out of 650). You don’t do that unless you’re confident you can win that election.
Once the Government has decided to call a General Election (either because the...
...May 2013 Election: Manual System or Automated Election System
Elections have played an integral role in the development of one’s country. Essentially, an election is a procedure by which members of communities and/or organizations choose persons to hold an office. It is a technique of rendering authority and/or creating representative bodies. Elections are often linked to the idea of democratic representation. Therefore, an election is a device for filling an office or posts through choices made by a designated body of people.
In the Philippines, election is always looked forward to by most Filipinos. It is conducted by the Commission on Elections (COMELEC), an independent constitutional body responsible for running the election. The Philippines elects on national level a head of state or the President and a legislature. The president is elected for a six-year term by the people and the vice-president is elected at the same time on a separate ballot. The Philippines also elects on a local level governors, vice governors, board members, mayors up to the barangay officials and the Sangguniang Kabataan or youth council members which is mandated in the current Constitution of the Philippines and the Local Government Code of 1991. As compliance with this, a citizen has to register in order to vote. People at the age of 18 and above may...
Election Reforms in India and Challenges before the Election Commission
March 23rd, 2012 → 12:35 pm @ Sia Shruti

India is often referred as a vibrant and vigorous democracy. But just because we have elections regularly, or rather far too often, does not necessarily mean that we have an effective democracy. Election can be defined as a system by which voters or electors, select their representatives by casting of votes. It is a cardinal necessity of every democracy and Right to Vote is a Constitutional right of its citizens. The Constitution of India provides for an Election Commission of India which is responsible for superintendence direction and control of all elections. It is responsible for conducting elections to both the Houses of Parliament and State Legislatures and for the offices of President and Vice-President.
Inconsistencies in the Election System in India
India has experienced an epoch of elections for innumerable times and has undergone great transition crossing several upheavals, engrossed with numerous discrepancies. The way our legislature and State assemblies function, does not make us proud. One of the major causes for the unruly and unproductive functioning of the legislatures is the quality of people who find their way into the legislatures. The...
...Elections: through the years, the youth has been strategically and sometimes corruptly used for electoral purposes from campaign ads to solicitations to school events and even during graduation ceremonies exploiting our national hero, Jose Rizal’s famous line, “The youth is the hope of our Fatherland.” Same stories, same strategies. But how is this year’s election on the hands of the youth any different? Are we still the un-empowered generation who, in the near future, will take over the nation? Fortunately, the youth was becoming more discerned, more involved, and more vigilant to the things that greatly affect most of the Filipinos prior to this year’s selection of our next leaders. There is progress in the decision-making mechanism of the youth as to what organizations to join, whom to support, and up to what extent do we allow ourselves to be used by aspiring candidates to become public servants.
We are more discerned. Common strategies of politicians before and during campaign periods were repairing faulty roads, giving T-shirts with their faces printed either in front or at the back part, inviting the youth to become a member of an organization and do a series of activities under their name, or sponsor a youth program where his name was acknowledged a hundred times. Whenever I get to ride on a tricycle passing through faulty and bumpy roads which looked like mini pools during rainy days, I have always asked the driver why those roads...
...The first twenty years of the 1900’s woman fought for the right to vote. Suffrage rocked the masculine mystique that held women under the perception of the fair sex, which disabled them to make important decisions politically, which influenced American government. However, in 1920 that mystique was shattered when women were granted the right to vote and given a voice in shaping the nation. This new group of voters was now influencing the 1924 presidential, state, and localelections. Men in the United States held social perceptions of women that influenced the women’s suffrage movement and the election of 1924. Efforts were made to persuade women to vote and participate in democracy; however, political parties also reacted to these new potential voters concerning campaign strategies and tactics to keep women away from the polls. Despite this massive change for the voting rights of women, the election of 1924 was only slightly impacted by the wave to newly franchised women voters.
The history of the women’s suffrage movement goes farther back than the early 20th century social movements. The seeds of women suffrage were planted through the Seneca Falls convention in 1848. This convention organized by New York women in response to oppressive U.S. government that held women socially inferior. The women of the Seneca Falls convention raised many grievances against the United States government in a similar format as to how...
We didn’t have a lot of choices it seemed.
The Primaries are the first step of the election process. In this step there are multiple candidates competing to be their parties’ nominee. During this step people can cast a vote towards who they wish to become their parties’ nominee. These elections can be either opened or closed. In the closed election only people from the specified party can vote. In an open election people from all parties can vote.
Once each party has chosen their candidate for office, the individual then runs for the general election. Through speeches, they try to express their ideals and values in order to gain the approval of their voters, and outdo their opponent.
Campaigning is the process in which each candidate in the election use media to gain popularity among the citizens by showing that their ideas are better for the American people than their opponents. Using media such as newspapers, radio, television, internet, and propaganda they gain the attention of the American people. Candidates will frequently implore the use of slander to destroy the image and self esteem of their opponent.
In this step, people vote on who they believe is suitable...
