ZP prez election deferred

ZP prez election deferred

The elections to the posts of Hassan zilla panchayat president and vice president were postponed for the third time on Monday. The JD(S) members abstained from the meeting, leading to lack of quorum.

The 40-member ZP has 23 JD(S) members, 16 Congress and one BJP member. As JD(S) enjoys a majority, it was speculated that Bhavani Revanna, wife of MLA H D Revanna, would become the ZP president. But, the party was disappointed as the post was reserved for ST woman.

In its efforts to prevent Congress from capturing power, the JD(S) has been boycotting the elections for the past one month. The elections were deferred twice early this month and are  now are scheduled for June 3.
