Live election results for the president: As the vote-counting process for the presidential election is underway at the Parliament House, India will find out on Thursday who will follow current President Ram Nath Kovind to become the nation’s 15th President. Droupadi Murmu of the ruling NDA and Yashwant Sinha of the opposition are set against one another in the race, with Murmu undoubtedly winning due to the fact that, if elected, she would become the first tribal woman to hold the nation’s top constitutional position. On July 24, Kovind’s term will come to a close, and on July 25, the next President will take office.
As the NDA presidential nominee, Droupadi Murmu’s hometown Rairangpur expressed confidence in her victory and prepared for celebrations on Wednesday, hours before results were announced, laddus were being made and hoardings congratulating “Odisha’s daughter” were put up.
On Thursday morning in New Delhi, the process of tallying the votes cast in the fifteenth presidential election will begin. Many local organizations, including business associations, bar associations, educational and religious institutions, and even government officials, are eagerly awaiting the opportunity to congratulate the “daughter of the soil.”
When the results are announced, folk performers and tribal dancers will take to the streets having practiced their performances. They are anxiously awaiting the inauguration of the nation’s first tribal woman president.
Local BJP leader Tapan Mahanta stated, “We are cooking 20,000 laddus and have put up 100 banners congratulating Murmu, who has her residence in our town.”
As residents of rural areas are anticipated to swarm Rairangpur town in Mayurbhanj district starting at noon, numerous organizations have planned large-scale events. People are excited that for the first time, a state resident is expected to hold the highest constitutional position in the nation.
On Monday, lawmakers from all over the nation exercised their right to vote to choose between Murmu and Yashwant Sinha, the candidates running for the 15th president of the nation. BJD, BSP, Shiromani Akali Dal, Shiv Sena, and JMM have also backed the NDA candidate.
