The Election Commission has recommended that 20 of AAP MLAs be disqualified for holding ‘office of profit’. The EC has sent its recommendation to the President for his assent, which he’s fully expected to give his consent. In cases where petitions are made seeking disqualification of lawmakers, the President sends a reference to the EC which decides on the case by sending back its opinion.

The President is bound to go by the recommendation of the Commission.In the present case, the petition was made to disqualify 21 MLAs, but one had resigned a few months back.
