AP High Court division bench postpone to hear SEC petition
On Tuesday, the AP High Court has adjourned the hearing on a petition filed by the State Election Commissioner Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar to January 18th in connection with the Panchayati election schedule. The State Election Commission has issued a notification regarding the conduct of the elections.
The state government has approached the high court challenging it amid corona fear. The single bench has suspended the election schedule. The SEC filed a petition challenging this in the Division Bench in this context.
The High Court said that there was no need for an urgent inquiry into the Panchayat election orders. The High Court said it would hear arguments in the regular court on the January 18th.
