SC to hear plea to bar candidates from contesting from more than one seat

The Supreme Court today said it would hear after two weeks a plea which has sought to restrict a candidate from contesting from more than one constituency in a general election. 

The matter was mentioned for early listing of the plea before a bench of Justices S A Bobde, M M Shantanagoudar and S Abdul Nazeer.

The Election Commission (EC) in an affidavit filed earlier in the apex court had quoted its 2004 proposals on electoral reforms and said that law should be amended to ensure that a person cannot contest from more than one seat.

It also said that its proposal to bar candidates from contesting from more than one seat was rejected by a parliamentary standing committee way back in 1998, which had taken note of the view of an all-party meeting favouring to retain the provision.

In response to the petition, EC said, there was no change in its 2004 proposal. 

The EC submitted that there was no change in its stand on this proposal but the amount proposed in the year 2004 may be enhanced appropriately.
