The inaugural meeting of ‘One Nation, One Election’ took place today at the residence of former President Ram Nath Kovind.

The inaugural meeting of the ‘One Nation One Election’ committee is expected to take place today at former President Kovind’s residence in Delhi, as reported by sources cited by news agency ANI. This committee, chaired by former President Ram Nath Kovind, was established by the Bharatiya Janata Party-led Centre following the announcement of a special five-day session in Parliament by Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi. The committee’s primary objective is to explore the feasibility of simultaneous Lok Sabha and Assembly elections, a concept known as ‘One Nation, One Election.’

The committee, led by former President Ram Nath Kovind, will undertake a comprehensive assessment and propose specific amendments to the Constitution, the Representation of the People Act, and other relevant laws and regulations to facilitate the synchronization of Lok Sabha and Assembly elections. Additionally, it will evaluate whether these constitutional amendments would necessitate ratification by the states.

Furthermore, the committee will analyze and offer recommendations for potential scenarios that may arise during simultaneous elections, including the possibility of a hung House, the passage of a no-confidence motion, defections, or other such events.

It’s worth noting that the upcoming five-day special session of Parliament, scheduled from September 18 to 22, will omit Question Hour, Zero Hour, and private members’ business, as stated in a notice from the Lok Sabha Secretariat. This decision has sparked discussions, with some in the opposition suggesting that the special session reflects a degree of apprehension within the Central government in anticipation of the forthcoming five-state Assembly elections later this year.
