elections in parliament can't be held in the similar manner as the legislature. For Rajya Sabha, Legislatures nominate prescribed seats, but for Legislative Councils, prescribed quota of seats are allotted to different groups like teachers, panchayats, graduates, etc.

@ Parth Yadav...Don't be over analytical...read the sentence carefully before jumping to the conclusion...Here, parliament and legislative elections simply mean Loksabha (i.e for an MP) and Vidhansabha (i.e for an MLA) elections respectively. Don't they take place in the same manner? Have a keen eye for detail....o tabhi hoga jab Selfie se dhyan hataoge!!!

This is not a question of being over analytical, it was clearly written Parliament, you cant assume Parliament means Lok Sabha

Now, the problem is you are linking both sentences to each other because both are written one after another... that's the typical human behaviour(For more ...read Thinking Fast And Slow by Daniel Kahneman). you do one thing...treat each sentence in isolation. Then, decide for yourself...because the fact is in general parlance 'parliament election' means LOKSABHA election, that is what Roman sir has considered there. Anyway...not interested in repartee and counter-repartee...PEACE!!! and @Parth Yadav...Mind your business!
