Law panel proposes tough legal framework for simultaneous polls
Updated : April 17, 2018 08:55 PM IST
According to the working paper, the second phase of simultaneous polls can take place in 2024.
The document states that the leader of the majority party be elected prime minister or the chief minister by the entire house (Lok Sabha or state assembly) to ensure the stability of the government as well as the Lok Sabha or the assembly.
It suggests that in case a government falls mid-term, the term of the new government would be for the remaining period "and not for a fresh five-year term".
