Just as cricket is the game of uncertainty, an election, a democratic exercise, be it parliamentary, assembly or, panchayat or even civic bodies’ poll, whatsoever, is also considered to be a game of uncertainty. But just as cricket, it is, indeed, not always true of a dominant political party, especially if it is a cohesive, well-knit and ruling outfit, as the Congress was till before the pre-emergency period in this country. If it is so, there is every likelihood of its or its ruling coalition registering an easy win in any election. In other words, whichever ruling party is in a tidy state and its public image is on the upswing with its unique performance on some key sectors of economy, that outfit stands a fair chance of winning in an election despite the opposition parties’ pitting strong candidates against the ruling party.
