The Delhi High Court on Thursday directed a Notification to the Election Commission of India (ECI) on a Petition claiming Orders and guidelines to conduct and regulate Internal Elections in Political Parties.

Advocate C Rajashekaran filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) and pleaded that the process for Internal Elections should be involved and made a part of the Constitution of the concerned Political Party.

A Bench comprising of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Jyoti Singh heard the matter and informed the Election Commission of India (ECI) to present its response by the next date of Trial and posted the hearing for December 23.

Advocate Rajashekaran is one of the founding members of Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM), Kamal Hasan’s Political Party.

Earlier, Advocate Rajashekaran filed a similar Petition which was disposed of by the High Court with directions to the Election Commission of India (ECI) to treat the Plea as a resemblance.

Although, on Thursday, Advocate Rajashekaran’s counsel submitted in the Court that the ECI’s reply to the representation was unacceptable.

Advocate Rajashekaran earlier also alleged that most Internal Elections in Political Parties are fictitious where the winner has pronounced already.
