no you post it in the right section.

two conditions are there

1) it should be the bigest  party or group among the opposition

2) the group/ party have to get at least 10/15/20 % of the total seats of perliament or legislature.

( 10/15/20 %  -  i am not sure about it  )

The leader of single largest oppostion party which is having minimum 10% strenght of house is eligible to become 'Leader of Opposition'. If no party has 10% strenght of house, two or more parties having aggregate strenght of 10% of house may elect any MLA to be their leader; and that leader could be declared as 'Leader of Opposition' by the Speaker of House.
