The Central government has taken a significant step towards exploring the possibility of implementing ‘One Nation, One Election’ by forming a committee headed by former President Ram Nath Kovind. This committee will be responsible for studying and evaluating the feasibility of conducting simultaneous elections across the country.

The idea behind ‘One Nation, One Election’ is to synchronize the electoral process for the Lok Sabha and all state assemblies, ensuring that elections are held simultaneously. The aim is to streamline the election cycle and reduce the frequency of polls, which currently take place at different times in various states.

The committee’s composition will be announced through a notification at a later date. This move comes ahead of the special session of Parliament scheduled from September 18 to 22, during which the Central government is expected to introduce the ‘One Nation, One Election’ bill.

This special session holds significance as it will be the first of its kind during the tenure of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government. Previous special sessions were joint sittings, but this time, both the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha will convene separately for a full-fledged five-day session.

Overall, the formation of this committee and the upcoming special session of Parliament indicate the government’s focus and commitment towards exploring the concept of ‘One Nation, One Election’ and its potential implementation in the future.
