High Court Stay On Release Of Final Voter List By EC

The High Court took up Marri Shashidhar Reddy's petition for trail immediately, and imposed a stay on the release of the final voter list.
Hyderabad | 5th October 2018
The Hyderabad High Court took up for trial a petition filed on the voter list irregularities in Telangana.

Following the directions of the Supreme Court, the petitioners Marri Shashidhar Reddy and Shashank Reddy filed a petition in the High Court along with a copy of the Supreme Court ruling.

The High Court immediately took up the petition for trail and, after hearing both sides of arguments, imposed a stay on the release of the final voter list.

The High Court also directed the Election Commission to not release the election notification before October 8.

The court asked the commission not to upload the final list of voters to the official website, and asked it to submit the draft copy to the petitioners and the High Court first.

The court posted the case to Monday while directing the commission to file a counter on October 8.

The High Court also dismissed two out of four petitions on the voter list.

For the uninitiated, the petitioner and TPCC senior leader Marri Shashidhar Reddy had alleged in his petition that there were irregularities in 70 lakh names in the voter list. He filed a petition first in the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court, after hearing the petition on Thursday, directed the petitioner to approach the High Court as the High Court had the authority to postpone the election process.
