AGENDA

4:00pm-5:30pm: Panel discussion followed by Q&A.

Panelists include:

Professor Pradeep Chhibber and his UC Berkeley colleague, Pranav Gupta, have written several articles in the Indian Press on the current Lok Sabha elections. One of their reports is titled: “Political Parties dominate India’s National Elections, not Candidates.” The number of candidates in each constituency has proliferated since Independence, but an independent has a minimal likelihood of winning a Lok Sabha seat, they explain. Their another article is titled: “Not just Political Apathy, Faulty Electoral Rolls to blame for lower Lok Sabha Poll Turnout.”
