The holding of byelections for 24 assembly seats in Madhya Pradesh before the six-month mandatory period ends seems a bit dicey now with Covid cases increasing rapidly in the state, especially in the districts where a bulk of these assembly segments are located.A total of 22 MLAs had resigned on March 10, making September 10 the last date for completing the election process to these seats. Besides these 22 seats, two more are lying vacant due to the death of the incumbent MLAs.
Section 151 A of the Representation of People’s Act, 1951, states that vacancies in Parliament and assemblies should be filled up within six months. The Election Commission of India (ECI) has already deferred byelections in 8 assembly segments across the country after consultation with the law ministry, creating a precedent for the same.
