The President of India may have a choice in the appointment of the Prime Minister when ________.


ANSWER

No single party is having an absolute majority in the Lok Sabha


SOLUTION
Under the Discretionary Powers of the President, if no single party gains majority and a "coalition government" is to be formed, President can exercise a little discretion and select the leader of any party who, in his opinion, can form a stable ministry. However, even in such a situation, his action should be guided by certain conventions. President may first invite a person and appoint him the Prime Minster and then ask him to prove his majority or seek a vote of confidence in the Lok Sabha within a reasonable time.
