CHENNAI: DMK has moved the Madras HC challenging the validity of ECI rules mandating it to approach only the SC for appeals against the commission’s order regarding pre-certification of poll advertisements.
Admitting the plea, the bench of Chief Justice Sanjay Vijaykumar Gangapurwala and Justice Sathya Narayana Prasad directed the poll body to respond by April 17.The court also clubbed the petition with other three pleas moved by the party challenging the ECI rejection order on its election advertisement videos.
Opposing the plea, the poll body submitted that decisions of the SLMCMC cannot be challenged before the HCs but only before the SC. Supreme Court itself has passed several orders in this regard from time to time, ECI said.
