Indian Presidential Elections 2012

You must be thinking, Who is the president? Who decides who will become the president? Do we have a president in our country?
Hmmm, Let us try to understand. Every country needs a government which has many policy makers. This government helps in the running of the country. The head of this government is called the “President”.
You must have seen something similar in your school, whenever a class leader has to be chosen the teacher selects some names of students. All your classmates write a name of the kid they like on a tiny sheet of paper. The sheets are collected and counted,whoever gets the most, is selected as the class leader.
So the “President”  is like a class leader, the process of choosing is “Elections” and the tiny sheets with names on them are like “Votes”.
Of course we have a President in our country!
The current president is Pratibha Patil, the first woman president of the country. Since president is only elected for five years, it’s almost time now to choose a new president.
For a new president, All political parties should agree on a few common names. Then the voting process will decide who will become the 13th president of our country.
