Election and Electoral Process forms the basic foundation of democracy. Elections could be viewed as a part of the political process that reaches the culminating point of establishment of democratic governance. The proposed training programme would offer both these perspectives, both are having points of convergence than divergence. The subtle difference is that the Constitutional foundation gives a rights axis and the political perspective gives the philosophical position. The introduction of the training programme will be done on the political structure of democracy and will proceed to the postulate of free and fair elections. The legal framework with regard to the process of election ranges from general enactments like the Indian Penal Code to specific election related laws like Representation of People’s Acts not forgetting the innumerable Rules and Orders under the Constitution and specific Legislations.

Law Commission and National Commission on the Review of Constitution are the other major players.
