Karnataka Govt Formation - Supreme Court of India(SCI) Orders Floor Test on Saturday @ 4 P.M May 19,2018

The Supreme Court of India(SCI) on Friday May 18,2018 ordered that a floor test be conducted in the Karnataka Assembly on Saturday at 4 p.m.

The BJP's B.S Yeddyurappa, who was sworn-in yesterday as the Chief Minister, will have to prove his majority.

Mr. Yeddyurappa cannot take any major decision before the floor test, the Court said.

The Court also said no Anglo-Indian MLA can be nominated to the Assembly.

The SCI was hearing a petition filed by the Congress-JD(S) combine against the decision of Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala to invite the BJP to form the government in the State and to nominate an Anglo-Indian member to the Assembly.

The SCI on Thursday May 17,2018  gave the Attorney-General 48 hours to produce the two letters written to the Governor by Mr. Yeddyurappa. The top law officer had to procure the documents from the Governor and produce them at 10.30 a.m. today.
