  • In the intro, briefly explain the system.
  • In the body, mention how the working of the system in which the candidate getting the highest votes is declared a winner and the other votes turn out to be ineffective. How this could encourage polarisation. In the advantages of the system, mention its simplicity. In the suggestions mention the reforms in party politics, the option of other systems such as proportionate representation and systems in other countries such as Israel etc.
  • Conclude by mentioning the electoral reforms to deal with the polarisation of Indian politics.
