M Venkaiah Naidu, the candidate of the ruling BJP-led National Democratic Alliance, will be India’s 13th Vice President. Mr Naidu received 516 votes defeating the opposition’s candidate, former West Bengal Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi, who got 244 votes. A total of 771 of 785 votes, which is over 98 per cent, were cast by parliamentarians today.

Naidu will take the oath of office on August 11. The term of incumbent vice president Hamid Ansari, who held the position for two consecutive terms, ends on August 10.

By virtue of being vice president, Naidu also becomes ex-officio chairman of the Rajya Sabha. His position’s term is set at five years and he can technically be re-elected as vice president any number of times.
