On June 10, 2022, biennial elections to the Rajya Sabha are scheduled to be held to replace 57 retiring members in 15 states. Political parties are busy lining up candidates for the seats falling vacant, based on their perception about whom they would like to reward.
New Delhi (ILNS): The Supreme Court today said that it cannot direct Parliament to amend the Representation of the People Act, 1951 and force a declaration that persons who have been charge-sheeted should be disqualified from contesting elections.
Though amendments have been made to the Representation of the People Act, politicos have shamelessly sold themselves to the highest bidder. Is it time parties sign “prenuptial” pacts with their candidates?
