Abhishek Manu Singhvi: Congress Leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi Challenges ‘Draw of Lots’ Rule in Rajya Sabha Elections

Singhvi's petition questions the rationale behind the 'Draw of Lots' determining the outcome of the election

Abhishek Manu Singhvi: In a significant legal move, Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi has filed a petition in the Himachal Pradesh High Court challenging the rule of ‘Draw of Lots’ in Rajya Sabha elections. Singhvi’s petition questions the rationale behind the ‘Draw of Lots’ determining the outcome of the election, stating that it defies common sense for the name picked out to automatically become the loser.

Singhvi argued, “It is defying common sense that the name picked out in the ‘Draw of Lots’ becomes the loser.” He pointed out that nowhere in Section 65, which governs the ‘Draw of Lots’ rule, does it mandate that the name selected should be deemed the loser. According to him, this interpretation of the rule is intended only when there are three or more candidates, and the aim is to exclude one or two of them from the electoral process.

Asserting that the issue is not about politics but rather a fundamental legal question

Asserting that the issue is not about politics but rather a fundamental legal question, Singhvi emphasized that the law will prevail, and the High Court will address the matter in accordance with its rules. This legal challenge raises fundamental questions about the electoral process and the interpretation of relevant laws, marking a significant development in the realm of Rajya Sabha elections.
