SC refers to 5-judge Constitution bench plea seeking collegium-like selection process for CEC, ECs

Supreme Court
The Supreme Court today referred to a 5-judge constitution bench a plea seeking collegium-like selection process for appointing the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) and Election Commissioners (ECs).
 
 A bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and S K Kaul  said the issue of appointment of CEC and ECs has to be taken up by a larger constitution bench.


The bench was hearing a PIL seeking a transparent selection process for appointment of Election Commissioners in the poll panel. 

 The Centre, represented by Attorney General K K Venugopal, however, opposed the petition saying so far no case of abuse of official position by the CEC had come forward. 


He referred to names like T N Seshan and other persons who have graced the office of the CEC.
