The Supreme Court will hear on December 5 a petition filed by Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) party challenging the Tamil Nadu local body polls.
The elections are scheduled to be held in two phases on December 27 and 30, 2019 and the votes will be counted on January 2, 2020. The notification in this regard was issued at 10 am today.
Senior lawyer Abhishek Manu Singhvi mentioned the matter for urgent hearing before a three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice of India Sharad Arvind Bobde, who said that the matter will be heard on December 5.
The petitioner asserted that the necessary formalities for delimitation have yet not been undertaken in Tamil Nadu for conducting the local body poll.
