Here is a look at numbers which are required for a candidate to become President of India.

  • Total number of votes (5,49,408 of MPs and 5,49,474 of MLAs): 10, 98, 882

  • Minimum votes required for President to be elected: 5,49,442

    Alliance wise position:

    UPA

  • Total Votes: 4,60,191 (42%, including TMC)

  • Congress: 3,30,485

    The votes with three crucial UPA allies are

  • TMC: 48,049

  • SP: 68, 812

  • BSP: 43,349

    Possible equations:

  • UPA - TMC: 412142

  • UPA + SP: 529003

  • UPA - SP: 391379

    Even if UPA goes without Mamata and with Mulayam and Mayawati, the numbers are: UPA - TMC + SP + BSP: 524303. The figure is still below the magic figure of 5,49,442.

    NDA

  • Total Votes: 304,785 (28%)

  • BJP: 2,23,885

    NON-UPA, NON-NDA

  • Total Votes: 2,62,408 (24%)

    Crucial Votes

  • SP + BSP + TMC : 68,812+ 43,349+ 48,049

    UPA'S vote share: 4,49,133

  • Congress: 330405

  • TMC: 45925

  • Magic Figure: 549442

  • UPA + RJD + SP + BSP: (49,133 + 10,350 + 66,688 + 45,473)

  • Magic Figure: 549442

    NDA'S vote Share: 3,04,785

  • Short by 2,44,657 votes

  • Magic Figure: 549442

    As the situation stands none of the existing alliances have majority to elect its candidate.
