High court of India’s Tamil Nadu province on Wednesday (October 04) maintained stay orders on conducting trust vote until it delivers verdict on “illegal” disqualification of 18 legislators of the ruling state party.

First, the petition of the disqualified legislators will be heard and after that a decision would be taken on holding a trust vote in the Tamil Nadu state assembly, said, Rajasendoora Pandiyan, lawyer of estranged leader, T.T.V. Dhinakaran, of the ruling All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazagham (AIADMK) party.

The 18 legislators along with three others owe their allegiance to Dhinakaran and had withdrawn their support to the government. Following the withdrawal of the support, under anti-defection law, they were dismissed by assembly speaker P. Dhanapal in September.

Dhinakaran leads the faction that does not approve of the settlement reached between the other two camps in the party post power struggle within AIADMK following the death of its leader and state’s chief, Jayaram Jayalalithaa, in December 2016.

In the 234-member house, the AIADMK has strength of 134. After the withdrawal of support of Dhinakaran’s faction, the strength has plummeted to 113, four short of halfway mark – 117.

The next hearing is on Monday (October 9).
