Who advises the President in executive decisions in case of no-confidence motion and no clear majority to any candidate and the Lok Sabha is dissolved? Note this case is different from the case where the council of ministers themselves request for a dissolution in which case it is legitimate for them to continue to advise President as the confidence is still there. It seems illegitimate to continue to advise President in case of no-confidence. Also according to Article 74, President cannot have personal discretion on executive matters so can't take decisions himself. Please resolve this doubt. Thanks. @Neyawn @Lokhitwadi
I am unable to find the answer to the exact question I posed anywhere. Let me put options so that it becomes simpler to understand.
(a) The President uses his discretion in executive actions until new council of ministers is formed
(b) The old council of ministers continue to render advice
(c) A new committee is formed in the Parliament to temporarily render advice to the President until vacuum is filled.
(d) None of these
