Lie on criminal cases, get disqualified, Supreme Court rules about candidates

The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that if a candidate gives an incorrect declaration of the criminal cases against him or her, then the person’s candidature can be cancelled.

Cracking the whip on criminal politicians again, the Supreme Court ruled that if candidates give incorrect details of criminal cases pending against them, their candidature can be cancelled.

The apex court has ruled that such concealment amounts to interference in free exercise of electoral rights.

The Supreme Court gave a verdict in a 2006 case in which the election of a panchayat member from Coimbatore was challenged.
