Question:

Can we draw the following conclusions from the information given in this chapter? Give two facts to support your position for each of these.

(i) The Election Commission of India does not have enough powers to conduct free and fair elections in the country.

(ii) There is a high level of popular participation in the elections in our country.

(iii) It is very easy for the party in power to win an election.

(iv) Many reforms are needed to make our elections completely free and fair.

Answer:

(i) The first conclusion is wrong as the EC is powerful enough to ensure free and fair elections. The EC is an independent institute which has total control over the election processes.

(ii) The second conclusion is right because nowadays people are more aware of the importance of elections. They have started casting their votes and voting percentage have gone up.

(iii) The third conclusion is wrong because the party in power more often loses the elections.

(iv) The fourth conclusion is right because there are still some people or parties that use unfair means to win the elections. Many candidates and their supporters use violence to threaten other candidates.
