AAP office of profit case: Election Commission to resume hearing tomorrow
| Wednesday | 16th May, 2018
The Election Commission will on Thursday resume the hearing in the case of 20 Aam Aadmi Party MLAs after the Delhi High Court set aside their disqualification for allegedly holding office-of-profit.
The poll panel’s decision to resume hearing came after the high court March 23 order.
In September 2016, the high court had ruled against their appointment as parliamentary secretaries after hearing their pleas on a daily basis.
The MLAs had alleged that the commission had not given a hearing to their pleas since March last year.
“The oral hearing will be on the merits of the case,” a senior commission official explained.
