APSEC filed the House Motion Petition challenging the suspension of polls

Andhra Pradesh State Election Commission (APSEC) has challenged the orders of the High Court suspending the Parishad elections in AP. The SEC has filed a house motion petition to this effect. It asked the court to hold an urgent hearing on this. The High court on Tuesday afternoon heard petitions filed by TDP, BJP, and Janasena challenging the latest notification issued by the SEC.

The petitioners brought to the notice of the High court that the Supreme Court had given clear directions that the Election Code should be enforced four weeks before polling. The High Court raised objections that the SEC should give a fresh notification. After considering these arguments, the High Court issued interim orders suspending the Parishad elections.
