The political establishment is abuzz about who will be the next Indian president, a largely ceremonial post that comes open in July.

The president is the constitutional head but has limited powers, similar to that of the monarch in the United Kingdom, despite living in a 340-room palace that was once the British viceroy’s residence.

Who do you think is the best choice for India’s next president? Vote in our poll and tell us why in the Comments section.


How about having the person who has already provde his capability. If given a choice I would like to propose T N Seshan as my candidate and would like to see the country growing under his regime.
