Office of profit: Delhi HC refuses to grant relief to AAP

By Vicky

The Delhi High Court has refused any interim relief to the Aam Aadmi Party whose 20 MLAs were recommended for disqualification. The AAP had moved the Delhi HC seeking a stay on the recommendation made by the ECI which had disqualified the 20 MLAs on the office of profit issue.

This would mean that the order of the ECI remains and it would now go up before the President of India for consent. Once the President gives his consent the order would come into force. It would also mandate that by-elections are held in the 20 constituencies.

The Congress had on June 9, 2016, moved the poll panel to seek disqualification of 21 AAP MLAs.

In October last year, the EC had issued a notice to the Aam Aadmi Party lawmakers for an explanation.

In June 2017, the EC rejected the MLAs pleas to drop the "office of profit" case against them and ruled that the disqualification proceedings against them will continue.
