SC stays plea against Anglo-Indian MLA's nomination in K'taka Assembly

New Delhi, May 18: The Supreme Court on Friday stayed Congress-JD-S's plea challenging the Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala's decision to nominate an Anglo-Indian MLA to the assembly.Earlier the Congress-JD(S) combine had moved the Supreme Court against the decision of Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala to nominate an Anglo-Indian member to the assembly, saying it should not be done till the floor test in the House.The petition is likely to be heard tomorrow along with the main petition of the combine on which the apex court in the wee hours today refused to stay the swearing-in of B S Yeddyurappa as the Chief Minister of the state.In the petition, the Congress-JD(S) has sought a direction that the nomination of Anglo-Indian Vinisha Nero by the Governor be set aside till Yeddyurappa undergoes a floor test in the House to prove his majority.The strength of the Karnataka Assembly is 224 and nomination of one Anglo-Indian member takes it to 225.
