The government has filed a review petition in the Supreme Court on disqualification of convicted MPs and MLAs.

Last month Supreme Court of India struck down a provision in the electoral law that protects a convicted lawmaker, politician from disqualification on the ground of pendency of appeal in higher courts.

Under Sec 8(3) of the RPA, a person convicted of any offence and sentenced to imprisonment for not less than two years shall be disqualified for that and a further six years after release.

The following sub-section 8(4) says a lawmaker cannot be disqualified for three months from the conviction and if in that period he or she files an appeal against till its disposal by a higher court.

In this matter, also all political parties are united and in future, if they require to bring amendment or amend the constitution of India they will do it.
