SC's 'no' to PIL seeking disclosure of criminal antecedents, assets of candidates in polls

Updated : November 13, 2018 11:19 PM IST

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said such issues "cannot be the subject matter of judicial decisions" and the job pertained to other constitutional functionaries like the poll panel.
The PIL had referred to recent notifications of the poll panel and said they have been issued without either amending the model code of conduct (MCC) or the Election Symbol Order and hence, they lacked legal sanction to force candidates to disclose their personal details.
