Cross-Voting, Missing Votes Hit Opposition In Vice President Election

Newdelhi:6/8/17:Nearly two dozen MPs of opposition parties defied their leadership and voted for the NDA’s vice- presidential candidate M Venkaiah Naidu, BJP sources said. Mr Naidu secured 516 votes against the pledged support of around 495

With the former Union minister securing over 68 per cent of valid votes against 32 per cent of the opposition’s candidate Gopalkrishna Gandhi, who received 244 votes, the margin between two contestants at 272 was higher than Mr Gandhi’s tally.

Outgoing Vice-President Hamid Ansari had prevailed over his rivals by 252 and 233 votes in 2012 and 2007 polls, respectively.
