EC sought legal advice in Vattiyoorkavu by-election case: Teeka Ram Meena
Thiruvananthapuram: Chief Election Officer Teeka Ram Meena said the Election Commission sought legal advice in the Vattiyoorkavu by-election case.
The legal advice was sought as there is an election case against K Muraleedharan filed by Kummanam Rajasekharan.
“As K Muraleedharan resigned his MLA post, I believe there is no problem in holding the by-polls. I expect the by-polls in Kerala to take place along with the elections in other states. The EC will take further decisions on the matter,” said Meena.
Six assembly constituencies in Kerala are set to have by-elections. Meena indicated that the by-polls will be held on time.
In the Vattiyoorkavu by-election case, the EC has decided to move forward according to the legal advice.
