    Background: THE INDIAN PARLIAMENT YESTERDAY (30 AUG) ELECTED MR. GOPAL PATHAK, THE 73-YEAR-OLD GOVERNOR OF MYSORE STATE, AS DEPUTY TO THE NATION'S NEWLY INSTALLED PRESIDENT MR. V.V.GIRI.

    MR PATHAK, THE RULING CONGRESS PARTY CANDIDATE, WAS VOTED VICE-PRESIDENT BY A MAJORITY OF 231 OVER HIS NEAREST RIVAL, MR. J.S.PILLAI. HE WON 400 OF THE 725 VALID BALLOTS CAST AND POLITICAL OBSERVERS SAID THE VOTING INDICATED THAT FEW CONGRESSMEN, IF ANY, HAD VOTED AGAINST THEIR OFFICIAL PARTY NOMINEE.

    THIS WAS IN DIRECT CONTRAST TO THE TENSE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS WEEKS AGO WHEN A LARGE NUMBER OF CONGRESS LEGISLATORS VOTED AGAINST THE PARTY CANDIDATE AND PUT MR GIRI INTO OFFICE.

    MR PATHAK, IS A VETERAN LAWYER WHO WAS MINISTER FOR LAW IN 196? WILL BE SWORN IN FOR FIVE YEAR TERM. HIS MAIN FUNCTION WILL BE TO ACT AS CHAIRMAN OF THE RAJYA SABHA, THE UPPER HOUSE PARLIAMENT AND ACT AS HEAD OF STATE WHEN THE PRESIDENT IS OUT OF THE COUNTRY.
