The entire nation and the media is waiting with bated breath for May 23. Ahead of the and surveys, many non-NDA allies are teaming up to form their strategies for a post-poll alliance. The move by parties seem to have been inspired by the exit poll results. The scenario has led to intense speculation but this is yet another a learning curve for the media.

It should be noted that in a democracy, any party can form a government either through a majority or through coalition. There is no harm in some of the party leaders calling for a meeting to form a possible post-poll alliance. The moves of the various parties should be accepted as fair, especially by the media since the results are yet to be declared. For a voter however, it will be interesting to see how various scramble to find a quick solution post the announcement of results with regard to both forming a post-poll alliance and projecting a leader as a PM candidate.
