    As per SC judgment on a PIL today, from now on MPs, MLAs will loose their membership if convicted for more than 2 years. Details awaited...

    Re:

    Convicted! I thought some one not sound and bearing a criminal record is not eligible to hold any office of the Republic of India, this is another case that politicians do not get proved as criminal :dude: but a mere conviction can act in a negative way :truestory:

    I don't know the details saya, just watched it on TV headlines. Perhaps a section of Representation of the People Act has been annulled, lets see.

    Supreme Court says MPs, MLAs convicted in criminal cases can't stay in office
    PTI New Delhi, July 10, 2013 | UPDATED 15:59 IST


    The Supreme Court on Wednesday struck down as ultra vires a provision of the Representation of the People Act which protects a convicted lawmakers against disqualification on the ground of pendency of appeal against their conviction in the higher courts.

    "The only question is about the vires of section 8(4) of the Representation of the People Act (RPA) and we hold that it is ultra vires and that the disqualification takes place from the date of conviction," a bench of justices A K Patnaik and S J Mukhopadhaya said.

    The court, however, said that its decision will not apply to MPs, MLAs or other lawmakers who have been convicted and have filed their appeals in the higher courts before the pronouncement of this verdict...

    Even if they appeal they will remain disqualified from now on. :thumb: @sayareakd

    @Virendra, @Ray sir, please change the title of the thread.

    Now, parliamentarians will cry hoarse about breach of powers by SC. But this is what happens when the elected representatives forget their duties, someone has to fill the void!!
