‘Best Man’ should be selected as Chief Election Commissioner, 10 big things of Supreme Court on Election Commission


‘The ground situation is very dangerous…’

1. The Supreme Court, while hearing a petition on the process of appointment of Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) and Election Commissioners (EC), observed that the “ground situation is very alarming”. The Election Commission needs a CEC like the late TN Seshan, who is known to have carried out significant electoral reforms as the EC chief from 1990 to 1996.

2. A five-judge constitution bench headed by Justice KM Joseph heard a petition seeking reform in the system of appointment of election commissioners. It includes Justices Ajay Rastogi, Aniruddha Bose, Hrishikesh Roy and CT Ravikumar.

3. The Supreme Court has observed that the endeavor of our Benches is to establish a system in which the “best person” can be selected as the CEC.

4. The silence of the Constitution on how to choose the Election Commissioner (CEC) and Election Commissioners (EC) has been taken advantage of and exploited by all political parties, the Supreme Court said.

5. Supreme Court said. “So far there have been many CECs on us. But rarely does someone like TN Seshan make it…so we don’t want anyone to demolish him. Big power rests on the delicate shoulders of three people, including the CEC and the two Election Commissioners. So we have to find the best person for the post of CEC.

6. Attorney General R Venkataramani appeared on behalf of the Center in the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court told R Venkataramani, “Therefore it becomes very important that we follow a very good process. So that apart from competence, a person with strong character can be appointed as CEC.

7.Responding to the Supreme Court, Attorney General R Venkataramani said, the central government is not opposing the appointment of a qualified person. But the question before all of us is how this will happen. There is no vacancy in the constitution. Presently the Election Commissioners are appointed by the President on the aid and advice of the Council of Ministers.
