8.4 Views of speakers at the Seminars.-

In the seminars held by the Law Commission, particularly in the seminar held on 14th November, 1998 and in the National Seminar held on 23rd and 24th January, 1999, certain speakers commended the idea that only a candidate who got 50%+1 of the total number of valid votes cast in that constituency alone should be declared elected and that in case no candidate got 50%+1 of the valid votes cast, a 'run-off' election should be held between the two candidates obtaining the highest number of votes. The merit of such a method of election, they pointed out, was that it would reduce/eliminate the pernicious role played by the caste and religion in elections. So far as the idea of negative votes was concerned, only one or two participants supported it.
