It is a known fact that Karnataka speaker has disqualified the 15 assembly seats in the “K” assembly two months ago when the government in Karnataka fell down. On to this, the disqualified lawmakers have moved to the Supreme Court to challenge the decision of the speaker. From the churning update, the Supreme Court had heard the petition made by the expelled Karnataka MLA’s under the HD Kumaraswamy government.
It was known that these expelled MLA’s has also asked the Supreme Court to suspend the process to hold by-polls on their positions till a verdict is taken on their appeal against the speaker’s decision, reportedly. Whereas, the apex court has said that it will further hear the appeal of expelled MLA’s that are seeking interim relief on September 25th.
On the other hand, the election commission requested the Supreme Court not to hold the 15 assembly seats in Karnataka and elaborated saying, the former speaker’s order on expelling the 17 MLA’s as this cannot deprive them of the right to contest by-polls in Karnataka.
