The plea filed by Shelly Oberoi seeks for the elections to take place in a time-bound manner, and to ensure that the nominated members are not allowed to vote.
The Supreme Court today agreed to hear the plea filed Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Shelly Oberoi seeking to expedite the mayoral elections in Delhi on February 3, 2023.
Senior Advocate AM Singhvi mentioned the matter today before a CJI led bench, which agreed to hear the case.
"It will be listed on February 3...", CJI Chandrachud said.
Oberoi has sought for the elections to take place in a time-bound manner, and to ensure that the nominated members are not allowed to vote.
NCT of Delhi does not yet have a mayor despite voting in members of its municipal corporation early last month. The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) is without a mayor and deputy mayor after two its previous sittings saw violence break out among the AAP and BJP councillors.
The Delhi mayor election was to take place on January 24, 2023 but the elections were stalled as the House was adjourned indefinitely by the LG-appointed presiding officer following ruckus by some councillors.
On January 6, the first meeting of the newly elected House was also adjourned owing to ruckus between AAP and BJP members.
