Presidential election on July 17
The election for the next President of India, if one is needed, will be held on July 17, and votes will be counted three days later. President Pranab Mukherjee's term ends on July 24.

Among the reported contenders are cabinet ministers M Venkaiah Naidu, Sushma Swaraj, Thawar Chand Gehlot and Jharkhand Governor Draupadi Murmu. BJP chief Amit Shah said last month that his party will consult others but did not commit to a consensus candidate. "Consensus is a word that it is used in several ways. But we will hold discussions with everybody, including opposition parties," he said.
