SCBA requests a review of the Supreme Court’s ruling regarding Article 63-A.

On Thursday, the Supreme Court Bar Association petitioned the top court to reconsider its ruling from May 17 regarding the application of Article 63-A, which deals with the status of defection by parliamentarians.

On May 17, the Supreme Court’s larger bench issued a 3-2 slippered decision in response to a presidential reference asking the court to interpret Article 63-A, with the majority of the judges stating that the votes of lawmakers who dissented from their parties would not be counted in the four circumstances specified in the article.

The election of the prime minister and chief minister, a vote of confidence or no confidence, a bill proposing a constitutional modification, and a money bill are the four examples mentioned above.
