Counsel appearing for Aam Aadmi Party in MLAs disqualification case, on Monday withdrew the plea from Delhi High Court which sought to stay on Election Commission’s recommendation to the President for the disqualification of 20 MLAs for holding office of profit.
The counsel submitted that their plea has become infructuous as President Ram Nath Kovind has accepted EC’s recommendation and disqualified AAP MLAs.
The AAP has earlier filed a petition for granting the interim relief to MLAs whose names were recommended to the President by the Election Commission for disqualification for holding office of profit.
On January 19, Justice Rekha Palli after hearing the matter has passed an order stating that court has issued notice and asked the EC to clarify about the final communication sent to the President Ram Nath Kovind on the disqualification of the MLAs till January 22.
As per the Election Commission, by appointing parliamentary secretaries, the 20 AAP MLAs held office of profit, which is liable for disqualification from Delhi Assembly.
