Politics of Election Reforms in India
The Politics of Election Reforms in India covers a wide area of elections in India ranging from 1951-52 when the first General Election were held to the by-elections held in June 1988. An analytical and comparative approach has been adopted to discuss the various elections. The study embodies a discussion on the organisation and functions of the Election Commission of India, direct and indirect elections so far held in India as well as the electoral reforms implemented or yet to be implemented by the Government of India. It is expected that those interested in the study of Indian elections under parliamentary system will find the present study highly useful. The book provides up-to-date information to readers by covering the analyses of recent Assembly elections of Mizoram, Nagaland and Tamil Nadu held in January 1989.
