“Replacing the Speaker with “permanent tribunal” as adjudicating authority under anti-defection law would be a step in the right direction to achieve the objectives sought under the law”. Comment. (15 Marks)

Mentor’s comment:

  • https://www.thehindu.com/opinion/editorial/ending-inaction/article30627769.ece
  • In the intro, briefly explain what is an anti-defection law.
  • In the body, explain various cases in which the Speakers have acted impartial and let the political parties defeat the purpose of the law. This impartial nature whether in acting against the defectors or in some case not acting against the defectors is at the root of the controversies in many cases. Explain how a tribunal would be a better option to the Speaker under 10th Schedule.
  • In conclusion, state the importance of anti-defection law for political stability and how making it effective is a necessity.
