New Delhi: Delegates from 40 countries of Africa and Latin America will witness the world’s largest democratic exercise in April-May when an over 800-million strong electorate, the world’s largest, votes for India’s new government.
An electorate of 814 million – nearly three times the population of the United States – would be eligible to vote in the nine-phased elections from April 7 to May 12 across 28 states and seven union territories to pick 543 members of the 16th parliament.
The Election Commission of India and the UNDP have inked a MoU that focuses on South-South Cooperation in the area of election management. IANS
