There are several types of elections, direct and indirect elections. In direct elections, people have the right to directly vote for the candidates, while in an indirect election, people don’t vote directly, the candidates they had chosen before vote on their behalf. Lok Sabha elections are the example of direct elections while Rajya Sabha elections are the example of indirect elections.
There are differences between the two kinds of elections. But, a major difference between them is that through direct elections, all citizens of the country can choose their representatives. But, in the case of indirect elections, only the chosen representatives can cast their votes
