(1.)This is a petition under Article 226 of the Constitution for the issue
of a writ of certiorari or any other appropriate writ calling for the records in
Original Petition, No. 2 of 1953 on the file of the Election Commissioner
(District Munsif) Gurazala, relating to the election of the Panchayat Board, Kandlakunta,
and to quash the order, dated 28th August, 1953, therein.
(2.)The election of the President and members of (he Panchayat Board of Kandlakunta village
was held on 29th January, 1953. It is not now in dispute that for
the presidentship of the Panchayat Board there were two candidates who filed
nomination papers before 9 A.M. They are Markondiah and Panakala Reddi.
Markondaiah filed a written objection that the father's name of Panakala Reddi
was not correctly noted in the voters' list and hence his nomination paper could
not be accepted. After scrutiny and verification, the Election Officer upheld the
objection of Markondaiah and rejected the nomination of Panakala Reddi. At
this stage it may be mentioned that the 1st respondent's case is that after so rejecting
the nomination of Panakala Reddi, the Election Officer called for fresh nominations,
which he was not entitled to do, and thereupon the petitioner's name was proposed
and accepted after 10 A.M. ; that the 1st respondent thereupon filed written objections
that the time for receiving nomination papers was over and that therefore
he could not accept any more nominations. It is the further case of the 1st respondent
that the election officer accepted the nomination of the petitioner notwithstanding his objection.
(3.)The poll was taken and as per the result of the poll the
1st respondent got 367 votes while the petitioner got 391 votes. The petitioner
was thereupon declared elected.
