SC seeks Centre response to PIL to restrict one candidate to one constituency

SC

AMN

The Supreme Court has asked the Centre to file its response to a PIL seeking to restrict a candidate from contesting from more than one constituency in a general election. The Election Commission, in its affidavit in December last year, had quoted its 2004 proposals on electoral reforms and said, the law should be amended to ensure that a person cannot contest from more than one seat.

The poll panel had also said, its proposal was rejected by a parliamentary standing committee way back in 1998, which had taken note of the view of an all-party meeting favouring to retain the provision. Asking Additional Solicitor General to file a counter affidavit, a bench, headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, yesterday posted the matter for hearing in the second week of July.
