A disqualified MLA can’t be a minister in this assembly | India News

Seven Congress MLAs and three JD(S) MLAs face disqualification for anti-party activities and defying party whips. If the speaker disqualifies an MLA using his powers invoking the 10th Schedule of the Constitution, rules say the legislator can’t contest election to the current House (15th legislative assembly).
It can happen only in the 16th assembly. The disqualified MLA can’t become a member of the legislative council too. That can happen only after the 16th assembly is convened. Also, Article 164 (1B) of the Constitution states a member who has been disqualified can’t be made a minister till the expiry of his/her term, or till s/he is re-elected.
