Madras High Court earlier did not stay Speaker's move but put floor test on hold (representational)
The Madras High Court will deliver its verdict on the disqualification of 18 legislators in September by Tamil Nadu assembly speaker P Dhanapal today. The disqualified legislators, in a letter to then governor C Vidyasagar Rao, had withdrawn support to Edappadi K Palaniswami while making it clear that they were not withdrawing their support to the AIADMK government. The High Court earlier did not stay the Speaker's move but put the floor test on hold and directed that the 18 seats be kept vacant till its final orders. Today's ruling will decide the fate of the AIADMK government led by Edappadi K Palaniswami.If the bench of the Madras High Court, comprising Chief Justice Indira Banerjee and Justice Abdul Quddhose, upholds the disqualification, by-elections could be held in the 18 constituencies. If the Speaker's order is struck down, then the government will have to face a test of strength in the floor of the Assembly.
