PUBLISH CRIMINAL HISTORY OF CANDIDATES, SC ORDERS PARTIES

Why in news?

  • The Supreme Court ordered political parties to publish the entire criminal history of their candidates for Assembly and Lok Sabha elections along with the reasons that goaded them to field suspected criminals over decent people
  • The information should be published in a local as well as a national newspaper as well as the parties’ social media handles.  
  • It should mandatorily be published either within 48 hours of the selection of candidates or less than two weeks before the first date for filing of nominations, whichever is earlier.

Information should be detailed

The published information on the criminal antecedents of a candidate should be detailed and include the nature of their offences, charges framed against him, the court concerned, case number, etc.
