Explanation:

The Chairman is the Vice President of India, who is elected by an electoral college consisting of members from both the Rajya Sabha and the Lok Sabha. However, the Deputy chairman is amongst the members themselves.

Nominated members of the two Houses of Parliament do not have voting rights in the presidential election, but they do have the right to vote in the election of the Vice President. Only elected members participate in the presidential election.
