SC appoints third judge to determine 18 AIADMK MLAs


Madras High Court judge, Justice M. Sathyanarayanan has been appointed by the Supreme Court as the third judge to decide plea made by 18 AIADMK MLAs against their disqualification.

The disqualified MLAs had moved Supreme Court seeking seeking transfer of their case from the Madras High Court to the apex court.

On June 14, the Madras High Court gave a divided verdict on petitions challenging the disqualification of the 18 MLAs loyal to sidelined party leader T.T.V Dhinakaran, a ruling that maintained the status quo in the corridors of power in Tamil Nadu.

A Division Bench of the High Court, comprising Chief Justice Indira Banerjee and Justice M. Sundar delivered divided verdicts on whether the 18 MLAs deserved to be disqualified under the anti-defection law by Speaker P. Dhanapal on September 18, 2017 for approaching the Governor and seeking the removal of Chief Minister K Palaniswami.
