FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

1. Is political competition healthy?

Political Competition creates disunity and factionalism. People become too competitive and use dirty politics to win the election. Leaders often create policies to stay in power without thinking about the long-term effect of it. Though there are bad effects, the good outcomes overcome the bad effects. Political competition and frequent elections create pressure on the political leaders to work for the people.

2. What is called a voters' list?

The government prepares the list of eligible voters before the election. In India, anyone after the age of 18 years can vote. However, some criminals and mentally challenged persons are denied their voting rights in some rare cases. Apart from that, anyone regardless of his/her gender, caste, and religion can vote.
