This petition filed in the Supreme Court through advocate Ashwini Kumar Dubey said that the court can declare that if the ‘None of these’ option (NOTA) gets the most votes, then the election of that constituency is canceled. Will be done and fresh elections will be held within six months. Also, candidates for canceled elections should not be allowed to participate in the new election.
This petition states that many times political parties select candidates in an undemocratic manner without consulting the voters. That is why many times the people of the constituency are completely dissatisfied with the candidates offered. The petition says that if the maximum votes are received by NOTA, then the solution to this problem can be held by holding new elections. Nota getting the most votes means that the voter is not satisfied with the candidates.
