  • In the intro, mention the nature of debate in the Constituent Assembly on the election method.
  • In the body, explain the method and how population of India is represented in the total votes rather than one member one vote. In the next part, mention the implications of such wider base.
  • Conclude by mentioning that with the moral authority reposed in the President he can intervene on behalf of citizenry against the tyranny of the executive.
