HC orders conduct of local body elections in TN by November 17”

The court's verdict is considered remarkable as without local body elections, no representatives can be elected which directly affects the corporations, municipalities and panchayats. However, the elections were not conducted within the time stipulated by the single judge since the Commission went on appeal against his judgement.

Thirunavukkarasar said the state government was postponing the elections due to fear of losing them.

In a related development, the Tamil Nadu assembly adopted amendment bills in July for setting up a panel to recommend delimitation of wards in local bodies and also suggest quota for women, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes candidates.

DMK organisation secretary R.S. Bharathi, one of the petitioners, had submitted a petition in the court stating that bill to form a delimitation commission was introduced in the assembly on 10 July, exclusively with an intention to delay the local body election process.

In February, a division bench of the Madras HC ordered the State Election Commission to complete the polls by May 14. "But the court dismissed their arguments", said DMK lawyer P Wilson, to the media. After recording the undertaking, the judge had tagged the writ petition with two other PILs on the same issue pending before the first bench and posted the matter for further hearing on Monday.

The argument was not accepted and the court asked the poll panel to conduct local body elections on 17th November.

On September 1, when the petition came up for hearing before a single judge, the state undertook to defer enforcement of the rule till September 5.
