Cong-JD(S) move SC against nomination of Anglo-Indian MLA in Karnataka Assembly Thursday May 17,2018

The Congress-JD(S) combine on Thursday May 17,2018 moved the SupremeCourt of India(SCI) gainst the decision of Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala to nominate an Anglo-Indian member to the Assembly, saying it should not be done till the floor test in the House.

The petition was filed in the afternoon and is likely to be heard on Friday, May 18, along with the main petition of the combine on which the apex court, in the wee hours of Thursday, refused to stay the swearing-in of B S Yeddyurappa as the Chief Minister of the State.

In the new petition, the Congress-JD(S) sought that the nomination of Anglo-Indian Vinisha Nero by the Governor be set aside till Mr. Yeddyurappa underwent a floor test in the House to prove his majority.

The fresh petition will be heard by a bench comprising Justices A.K. Sikri, S.A. Bobde and Ashok Bhushan, which, in a historic pre-dawn hearing, allowed the scheduled swearing-in of Mr. Yeddyurappa as the chief minister.

The strength of the Karnataka Assembly is 224 and nomination of one Anglo-Indian member takes it to 225.
