Presidential election in India and U.S. are different in various perspectives. Like India and U.S. both have democracy form of government and they both have people from different community. On the other hand, there are differences also. India is developing country and U.S is developed country. U.S is among super power country. Whereas India is still struggle with basic issues like, poverty and employment. When we focus on law; in Constitution of India under Art 53; it states about the executive head of country i.e. President. And in U.S law, as per constitution, under Art 2 Sec (1). President is the executive head of the country. By the analysis, it been seen that there are some similarities and also differences in the election process. In both countries President is elected indirectly by the people. It can be seen in both countries, that representatives of common people are given power to elected President. This shows the democracy nature of these countries. As representatives have to follow pubic desire. It includes many steps. Every system has its pros and cons. As already discussed, U.S is a super power whereas; India is just a developing country, which have its own issues like poverty, unemployment, illiteracy. This shows that, they have their different need and requirement as per the administration system and economic condition. India is vast country with so much diversity and challenges. In my suggestion Indian Presidential election process is much better comparing to hold directly election.
