PM to be elected on the Floor of the Lok Sabha

This is in regard to the idea mooted by N. Chandrababu Naidu, that the PM be
elected on the floor of the house. I do not know if this idea gathers any
wind but here is my two cents worth. If a party (not an alliance of parties)
wins the absolute majority in the elections, then automatically the leader
of that party will be elected the PM. If the elections result in a hung
parliament, then the following would be a good idea. Each party (not an
alliance) would be eligible to field a certain number of candidates of their
choice from within their party (not from an alliance) for the PM's post.
Parties (not an alliance) that have won less than, say 10% of the seats are
not eligible to field candidates. The PM elected in this way can then form
the government. If for any reason, during the tenure of the government, a
need arises to table a no-confidence motion, then the same norms in electing
an alternative should be followed. Only if an alternative is elected, should
the no-confidence be tabled, and should the parliament be dissolved. Also,
necessary resolutions need to be passed to ensure that the parliament lasts
its full term of five years. This way, we can reduce frequent elections and
ensure some sense of stability. The reason I propose a percentage of 10 is
because, if a party could not bag 10% of the parliamentary seats it is a
clear indication that the party does not have a larger presence. Of course
the percentage can be debated about. But those are my thoughts.
