Only then will a floor test be conducted. The Congress-JDS lawyer also sought proper security for their MLAs in case of floor test being conducted.
Yeddyurappa, who was sworn in as the chief minister of Karnataka yesterday, told the bench that being the single largest party the BJP was the "mandate of people" of the state who have thrown out the Congress.
The Congress won 78 seats, the JD (S) 37, BSP 1, KJKP (Karnataka Pragnyavantha Janatha Party) 1 and the BJP 104.
The Congress-JD (S) combine pointed out that giving 15 days to prove majority has opened the door for horse-trading, and the period should be reduced.
After a almost three-and-a-half-hour hearing beginning 2:11 AM, a three-judge apex court bench made it clear that the provisional swearing-in and the government formation would be subject to the final outcome of the case before it.
Karnataka assembly will be convened at around 11 am tomorrow morning.Читайте также: Man Utd captain Carrick rules himself out of FA Cup selection consideration
Meanwhile, Congress in alliance with the JD (S) is holding protests against Yeddyurappa's swearing-in as CM of Karnataka, after the Supreme Court refused to stay his swearing-in. The JD (S) and the Congress had moved the Supreme Court after governor Vajubhai Vala invited the BJP to form the government first, seeking a stay on the swearing-in, calling it unconstitutional.
The Congress party, which lost sole control of the state in Saturday's election, tried to stop the BJP's B. S. Yeddyurappa from taking the oath as chief minister by forming a coalition with a smaller regional party.
The Congress chief added if the BJP wanted to talk about corruption, it should discuss the Rafale jet deal, BJP chief Amit Shah's son and (Union minister) Piyush Goyal's company.
The court had directed the Centre to place before it two communications sent by Yeddyurappa to the governor in which he had staked claim to form government, saying their perusal was necessary to decide the case. The Election Commission has tabulated the results of the just-concluded Assembly elections and submitted a detailed list of 222 candidates, who have been elected from all political parties.
A strong showing by the BJP in Karnataka has given him momentum for a re-election bid in next year's national polls and opened a path for more reforms, analysts say.
"In fact, in a House where BJP does not enjoy a majority, as it stands today, it will need cross-voting or MLAs abstaining from voting to win the Speaker's election".
Congress and Janata Dal also claim the support of two independents and have accused the BJP of trying to bribe their lawmakers to switch sides. "Supreme Court can change interim order tomorrow".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
