Opposition Vice President candidate Margaret Alva said she will work to build bridges between different political parties

Ahead of the 6 August vice presidential election, Opposition’s candidate Margaret Alva has written to all MPs saying, if elected, she will work to build bridges between different political parties, forge consensus on national issues and help restore the glory of Parliament. In a letter to all members of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha, who form the electoral college, Alva said, “The vice president’s election must be seen as a referendum on the manner in which Parliament is being run and the breakdown in the fundamental democratic process of building consensus on important national issues.”

If elected Vice President, I commit myself to work tirelessly to uphold the Constitution and to strengthen our parliamentary democracy. As Chairperson of the Rajya Sabha, I will work to build bridges between different political parties, forge consensus on issues of national importance, and help restore the glory of Parliament,” she told the MPs in her appeal.
