Resignation of MPs/MLAs

There is no statistics available either with the Government or with the Election Commission as to whether the Members of Parliament and Members of Legislative Assemblies are resigning from their seats frequently for political and pecuniary gains. Giving this information in written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha today, Shri Salman Khurshid, Minister of Law & Justice, said that the Law Commission of India in its 170th Report on Reform of the Election Laws has not made any recommendation in this regard. The 170th Report of the Law Commission of India is available on its website. The Minister also informed the House that the Election Commission has intimated the Government that whenever bye-elections are conducted by the Commission, the expenditure is incurred as required for smooth conduct of elections.
