Court to hear petition against Chawla on March 20

Legal Correspondent

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday posted for hearing on March 20 a writ petition filed by the United Communist Party of India questioning the continuance of Navin Chawla as Election Commissioner after Chief Election Commissioner N. Gopalaswami recommended his removal.

The petition filed by the UCPI, a registered political party, was mentioned by counsel Sugriv Dubey before a Bench comprising Chief Justice K.G. Balakrishnan and Justices P. Sathasivam and J.M. Panchal which decided to hear it on March 20.

The petitioner said the allegations made by the CEC in his recommendations to the President should be examined and verified by the Supreme Court as otherwise it would erode the impartiality of Election Commissioners.
