No Anglo-Indian representative till floor test

The Supreme Court approved the plea of the Congress-JD(S) combine against the decision of Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala to nominate an Anglo-Indian member to the assembly, saying it should not be done till the floor test in the House.

The petition was filed on Thursday afternoon and is heard along with the main petition of the combine on which the apex court in the early hours of Friday refused to stay the swearing-in of B S Yeddyurappa as the Chief Minister of the state.

The petition was heard by a bench comprising Justices A K Sikri, S A Bobde and Ashok Bhushan.

The strength of the Karnataka Assembly is 224 and nomination of one Anglo-Indian member takes it to 225.
