Once the result of election is out, the winning party’s chairman become the Prime Minister.

First of all, a care taker government is formed by current government at the end of their validity . Care taker government must be neutral to arrange a fair election. They get three months of time to arrange an election. Within this time, they divide the whole country into some zones, guide the election commission, discuss with political parties, monitor overall situation related with election.
If everything goes all right, then caretaker government declares the date of final election. After getting the declaration, election commission-EC, arranges ballot boxes, ballot papers, and other equipments for the election. Then, till the election, nominees from different political parties become so busy in publicity. All day all night they go from door to door so that they can convince people to give a vote for him/her and to elect him/her from his or her election zone. olunteers do the posterings, miking, distributing of leaflets in public places etc on behalf of the nominees. Finally, the much awaited day comes.
