Dear Editor,
Ruling BJP with 303 Lok Sabha members further added by support from allied NDA parties is set to win its candidates for the post of Speaker and Deputy Speaker in Lok Sabha. But healthy system can be imitated which may of utmost importance in time to come whereby Speaker and Deputy Speaker may be simultaneously elected through secret and compulsory votes of all members through EVMs equipped with VVPAT on nominations signed by at least 34-percent Lok Sabha members. Such persons may be removed only through no-confidence motion passed in the same manner but with compulsion to name alternate incumbent in the same motion.
Same system should be followed in state-assemblies too. Even Chief Ministers may be selected through same system simultaneously with Speaker and Deputy Speaker to avoid all possibilities of hung assemblies and horse-trading to form or uprooting governments. MLAs not participating in such elections may lose their voting-right in assembly tough retaining membership of the state-assembly.
