Election commission gives 19 AAP MLAs time till 21 Oct to file reply

The election commission (EC) today gave nineteen AAP MLAs time up until October twenty one to file their reply in the petition demanding their disqualification for holding office of Profit.

Yesterday, nineteen out of twenty one AAP MLAs had wanted time to file replies before the election commission saying they have more time to check the documents as the pen drives provided by the poll panel were faulty.

The MLAs, who are facing prospects of disqualification for allegedly holding office of Profit, have also asked for time claiming that lawyers were unavailable due to which they might not file their response.

The petition to disqualify AAP MLAs was filed by advocate Prashant Patel

“The Commission has considered the application for extension of your time and decided to grant further time up to October 21…subject to the condition that a copy of reply should be served on the petitioner (Patel) by October twenty,” he said.
