Presidential Election 2012

Pranab Mukherjee with Tim Geithner
Less than a month before the elections of the Indian President, the positions have been clarified. The two main parties, the Congress Party and its allies, and the BJP, the opposition party, have not found an agreement for a common candidate. 
We should thus have two candidates, one is the current Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee claimed by the Congress and the other is Sangma, Christian and tribal supported by the BJP and other political formations. 
On 29 June, the Minister Mukherjee has presented his own candidature to the presence of Prime Minister Singh, Congress Party’s President Sonia Gandhi and her son Rahul. 
The previous day was the turn of the candidate of the opposition, PA Sangma who in his appeal that has played up the 'tribal' card and renewed the charges against Sonia Gandhi for her foreign origins. 
If Sangma win, he would be the first time a Christian and a tribal representative office achieves the most Indian institutions.
