    make the election

    However, the UPA has the numbers and they are trying to make the election of their nominee doubly sure with the Prime Minister appealing to non-UPA parties and even the Opposition.

    Please explain the highlighed ones or rephrase the whole sentence so that I can understand.

    UPA have enough voters but at the same time they are trying to make sure that the person they have nominated is elected by asking the Opposition and non-UPA parties for their support.

    Re: make the election

    A quick addition: 'doubly sure' = 'absolutely certain'. The UPA want to be absolutely certain that they will win the election.
