SC directs political parties to publish details of pending criminal cases against candidates

The Supreme Court today directed political parties to upload on their website details of pending criminal cases against candidates contesting polls. While pronouncing an order on a contempt plea raising the issue of criminalization of politics, a bench headed by Justice F Nariman said, it appears that there has been an alarming increase in criminalization of politics in the last four general elections.

The Apex court directed political parties to upload reasons for selecting candidates with pending criminal cases on their website. The top court also asked political parties to publish these details on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter and in one local vernacular and one national newspaper. It also asked political parties to submit a compliance report to the Election Commission within 72 hours of selecting candidates having pending criminal cases against them.
