Maharashtra Bidhanparisada elections will be held on May 21
Crisis of Uddhav government was avoided
MUMBAI: Maharashtra Bidhanparisada elections will be held on May 21 . Election Commission on Friday issued a notification for the Maharashtra Assembly (Bidhanparisada )elections. According to the Election Commission, elections will be held on May 21 for seven seats in the state. All of these seats have been vacant since April 28. At the request of the governor, the Election Commission issued a notice for the election for the vacant seat.
However, with the Election Commission’s decision in the Legislative Assembly, the threat to the emerging government has been averted. Uddhav was sworn in as Chief Minister on November 27, 2016. However, he is not a member of any of the state legislatures. According to the constitution, he must be a member of any House of Assembly by May 24, 2020, within six months of taking office as Chief Minister. This rule applies to him as he is the Chief Minister without contesting the by-elections.
For this purpose, the Maharashtra government twice approved the proposal to nominate Uddhav from the Legislative Assembly and sent it to the Governor. However, Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari did not pay attention to this. The commission issued the notice on Friday, urging the prime minister to hold early elections to the six-member legislature. In his recommendation, the Legislative Assembly elections can be held in accordance with the guidelines of the Central Government in the event of a landslide in the state over corona. Now the commission has issued a notice accordingly.
