This chapter discusses the possible options before President Dr Shankar Dayal Sharma when a hung Lok Sabha emerged from the general election in 1986. This chapter discusses the rules that emerge from precedents and opinion of authorities the president should follow in such a situation. Among these are that an incumbent prime minister should not be invited to form a government once his party loses its majority in an election even if it emerges as the single largest party; and that the president should, in such a case, invite the next single largest party to form a government.

Keywords:   Shankar Dayal Sharma, President, Prime Minister, Lok Sahba, general election
