Office of profit case: 20 AAP MLAs move Delhi High Court to quash disqualification, EC decision

The Aam Aadmi Party on Tuesday moved the Delhi High Court, challenging President Ram Nath Kovind’s decision to disqualify 20 of its MLAs on the recommendation of the Election Commission. The bench will hear the petition on Wednesday.

On Monday, the 20 disqualified legislators withdrew their plea in the Delhi High Court seeking stay on the Election Commission’s recommendation. This was because their petition was deemed “infructuous” as Kovind had already issued a notification to disqualify them.

AAP had alleged that the Election Commission had not given them a fair hearing before sending its recommendation to the president.
