Delhi election 2020: High Court seeks EC, Centre stand on plea by 11 Independent candidates against rejection of nominations

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Monday sought responses of the Election Commission (EC) and the Centre on a plea by 11 Independent candidates challenging rejection of their nominations for the upcoming Delhi Assembly polls.

A bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice C Hari Shankar issued notices to the Centre and the EC seeking their stand on the candidates' plea, which also challenges a single judge order declining to entertain their petition against rejection of the nominations.

The division bench said it will hear the matter on 5 February. The returning officer (RO) had rejected their nominations on the last date for filing the same.

The plea challenging the rejection was dismissed by a single judge of the high court on 28 January by saying that only an election petition was maintainable after the poll process has started.
