The members of the parliament will vote on Saturday to elect the 15th vice-president of India.

Here is everything you need to know about the polls. In a lighter vein, he quipped that NDA's vice presidential candidate Venkaiah Naidu was already behaving like a daughter in law. Ansari's tenure will end on August 10. Members of the Electoral College, consisting of Members of the both Houses of Parliament including the nominated members of Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha vote in these elections.

Counting of votes will commence soon after polling ends, and the result is expected to be declared by 7 pm. NDA has 338 members in the 545-member Lok Sabha with BJP itself occupying 282 seats.

Ortega Diaz filed a complaint Thursday seeking a court order to block installation of the new assembly. Lopez remains incarcerated, one of hundreds of people who the opposition says are political prisoners.

While all parties under the NDA have given their support to Naidu, JD (U), which recently formed the government in Bihar along with the BJP and had offered its support to NDA candidate Ram Nath Kovind in the Presidential election, said it will support the candidature of Gandhi. Rajya Sabha members not being invited is "very condemnable", he said.

Modi also urged the MPs not to treat Naidu like a BJP leader after he dons the hat of VP but give all the respect and honour that a constitutional post deserved. Article 66 of the Indian Constitution states the manner of election of the Vice-President.

Naidu said that it would be his "endeavor to facilitate" proper conduct in the Rajya Sabha so that every MPs could contribute his or her best towards the creation of a "new India". In such cases, when a temporary vacancy in the office of the Vice President is created, the Deputy Chairman of the Rajya Sabha takes over the role of the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha.

During the meeting, a demonstration on voting will be held for the MPs, so that their vote in Vice President's election does not go in vain. The value of the vote of an MLA of one state is different from the other. The victor tomorrow needs 395 votes to become the next Vice-President of India. Mr Naidu's win is nearly certain as his party, the BJP, along with its partners enjoy a comfortable majority in the Lok Sabha.
