Impact of coalition politics on Indian parliamentary institutions (Indian experience)
The Parliament of India, is the supreme bilateral legislative body of Republic India and It is composed of the President of India and the two houses the Rajya Sabha (Council of States) and the Lok Sabha (House of the People). As we know that the President in his role as head of legislature has full powers to summon and prorogue either house of Parliament or to dissolve Lok Sabha. The president can exercise these powers only upon the advice of the Prime Minister and his Union Council of Ministers. Those elected or nominated by the President to either house of Parliament are referred to as Members of Parliament (MP). The Members of Parliament, Lok Sabha are directly elected by the Indian public voting in Single-member districts and the Members of Parliament, Rajya Sabha are elected by the members of all State Legislative Assembly by proportional representation. The Parliament has a sanctioned strength of 543 (as called as Magic number to form government in central) in Lok Sabha and 245 (as called as Magic number to form government in state) in Rajya Sabha including the 12 nominees from the expertise of different fields of science, culture, art and history. The Parliament meets at Sansad Bhavan in New Delhi.
