How is the nation
The election of Lok Sabha is held once in five years. As the country is divided into different constituencies, from each of these, one person is elected to the Parliament. The main duty of the Parliament is to choose the government for the country. The elected candidates belong to the different political parties and become the Members of Parliament or MPs.
Indian parliament comprises of President, Rajya Sabha and the Lok Sabha. The numbers of Members of Parliament or MPs are counted after the Lok Sabha elections and accordingly, it was counted how many MPs belong to each political party. To form the government, the political Party should have the majority of elected MPs in the Parliament. A political party should have half of the total elected members (543) in Lok Sabha which is 272 members or more. The leader of the ruling party is Prime Minister who chooses the elected MPs to work as part of the executive to implement laws. The Executive is the group of people who try to put into effect the laws created by Parliament. They then work on different departments like education, finance, and health, etc and through them only the government functions.
Rajya Sabah, another important part of Parliament functions as the representative of the states of India. For the law to function it needs to be passed through Rajya Sabha. Thus, their duty is to review and make changes in the law passed by the Lok Sabha. It is important that laws be made in order to control, guide and inform the government.
This is how the National government is selected.
