[12/2, 13:12] Sekarreporter: Appearing before a Bench led by Chief Justice Sharad A. Bobde, senior advocate A.M. Singhvi sought an urgent listing of the application as the elections were due shortly in December.
The Supreme Court on November 18 ordered the authorities to issue election notification and complete legal formalities before December 13, the next date of hearing.
“Directions should be issued to the respondents to carry out delimitation, reservation and rotation process and all the formal legal requirements before issuance of election notification and conduct of elections,” the DMK submitted in court.
The party said only this would ensure free and fair elections.
The State government had informed that the local body polls would be conducted in accordance with the delimitation process completed in 2018.
The local body elections have not been held from 2016. The Madras High Court had also directed the holding of the polls. A lawyer, Jaya Sukin, had filed a petition for the conduct of the polls.
In its affidavit earlier this year, the Tamil Nadu government had submitted in the apex court that it had never shied from its constitutional responsibilities.
The State had denied claims by Mr. Sukin that lack of local body representatives had crippled development work in rural Tamil Nadu.
The government had said in court that it had appointed Block Development Officers as special officers of village panchayats for uninterrupted discharge of civic maintenance responsibilities under the Tamil Nadu Panchayats Act 1994.
It had clarified that ample funds had been released to village panchayats on time for carrying out civic works.Supreme Court to hear on December 5 DMK’s plea for legal formalities ahead of local body polls: [12/2, 13:12] Sekarreporter: Supreme Court to hear on December 5 DMK’s plea for legal formalities ahead of local body polls: https://www.thehindu.com/news/national/tamil-nadu/supreme-court-to-hear-on-december-5-dmks-plea-for-legal-formalities-ahead-of-local-body-polls/article30135596.ece
