This strength is further enhanced by its allies such as the Janata Dal(United), which has 21 members, the Rashtriya Lok Janshakti Party (the Rashtriya Lok Janshakti Party), the Apna Dal and many from the northeastern countries.
There are 776 MPs in Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha with 700 votes each, but there are also as many as 4,033 legislators from states with different vote values who will be able to elect Ram Nath Kovind’s successor.
