                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

   Congratulating the Republic of India on the conduct of its recent 
                     democratic national elections.

Whereas the Republic of India, a vast country of over 1,000,000,000 people, 
        numerous ethnic and religious groups and 18 major languages, has been 
        for 57 years the world's largest democracy;
Whereas India has a strong multiparty system in which all political views are 
        freely expressed and respected;
Whereas nearly 400,000,000 people cast votes over a three-week period, utilizing 
        electronic voting machines at almost 700,000 polling stations, for 543 
        seats for the Indian national parliament, a monumental undertaking;
Whereas India's example of free and fair democratic elections and respect for 
        the democratic process is an inspiration and model throughout the region 
        and the world;
Whereas India's economic prosperity, political dynamism, and national security 
        are a direct result of its democratic system of government;
Whereas India and the United States share a special relationship as the world's 
        two largest democracies, and have a shared commitment to respecting and 
        defending the will of the people and the rule of law;
Whereas India and the United States are natural friends and allies, sharing 
        common fundamental interests in building a peaceful, prosperous, and 
        secure world free from want and fear; and
Whereas India and the United States continue to work closely in their common 
        fight against the scourge of terrorism: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That Congress--
            (1) commends the people of the Republic of India, the 
        largest democracy in the world, for their achievements in 
        establishing a successful democratic country, which serves as 
        an example for emerging democracies throughout the world;
            (2) recognizes with satisfaction the strong historical ties 
        and shared interests between India and the United States;
            (3) reaffirms the strong friendship between India and the 
        United States that will continue to develop in the future; and
            (4) expresses its deepest best wishes and regards for the 
        future success of the new government of India.
