Anti defection law doubt

My doubt is....why a nominated member can't join a party after 6 months....he can do so within six months but not after 6 months.....i am not able to get logic behind this...pls clarify.

Comments

  • The idea is that when a member is nominated, he is assumed to be apolitical. And whatever party he joins will be on the basis of ideology and rational preferences rather than money. It is presumed that after some time ( 6 months ), the member is well known of the political trade and his party choosing is categorised as monetarily motivated.
  • Nominated MP's are generally selected on the political patronage they keep with.(Eg. Recently nominated Subrahmaniam Swamy is known to be an affiliate of the BJP party.)The strength of the political party is thus ensured in the RS by adding a nominated Mp. however, It is to check him from shifting his political allegiance to any other party after a certain point of time,the stick approach of Anti Defection laws is applied. In this way, the nominated MP also comes under the purview of Anti Defection like any other elected member.

  • one more is,Lets suppose a no-confidence motion is introduced, then there are very good chances to buy the nominated MP. Hence to prevent this horse trading one need to join within 6 months based on his/her political ideology.
  • Thanks everybody...
