High Court directs SEC not to conduct election to Eluru Municipal Corporation
The High Court directed the State Election Commission (SEC) not to conduct election to the Eluru Municipal Corporation (EMC) after hearing arguments on a petition. Petitioner’s counsel said that the AP government had merged seven villages in the corporation without taking the consent of grama sabhas. It was informed to the High Court that voters list was not prepared as per divisions after the merger of villages in the corporation. For the second time, the election for the EMC was postponed. Earlier, the SEC put on hold to election to municipal corporations, municipalities and Nagara Panchayats because of the coronavirus pandemic.
