Madras HC verdict on disqualification of 18 MLA’s expected today
All the Tamilnadu political parties were eagerly waiting for the verdict today on the disqualification of 18 MLAs belong to TTV Dhinakaran faction. Judgment will make a sharp turn of political events in the current scenario. If the court approves the decision of speaker, then the current government will breathe freely as they will have the numbers in their favor with the disqualification of the MLAs. But if the court gives verdict in favor of the MLA’s then the government will run into tough weather. Opposition parties including DMK may ask the ruling party to prove their majority.
But there was a third angle to the problem. If the two judge bench consists of Chief Justice Indira Banerjee and Justice M Sundar give split verdict then the case will be heard again. Two Judge Bench gave the split verdict which means that the government is safe as of now. A third judge will now take over the proceedings and will provide the judgment. It will be a breath of relief for the ruling party and Chief Minister and a big blow to the oppositions who were anticipating toppling the government for quiet some times.
