20 AAP MLA’s Disqualification Case: Delhi HC transfers plea to division bench


New Delhi, Jan 29: The Delhi High Court on Monday transferred the plea of 20 Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs challenging the disqualification order to the division bench in connection with ‘office of profit’ case.

Meanwhile, The  Court also continued its interim order which has asked the Election Commission (EC) to not issue any notification for the Delhi by polls.

Acting Chief Justice of the Delhi High Court, Gita Mittal will decide the division bench for tomorrow.

Earlier on January 23, AAP moved to the Delhi High Court seeking to quash the disqualification of its 20 MLAs accused of holding the ‘office of profit’.

On the recommendation of Election Commission of India, President Ram Nath Kovind on January 21, approved the disqualification of those MLAs, accused of holding the ‘office of profit’,

However, earlier on January 22, AAP Lawmakers withdrew their petition from the High Court that they had filed on January 19 after the Election Commission’s recommendation.

The Delhi High Court, on that date, refused to pass any interim order of protection to those MLAs.
