Editorial : Politics of positions


The editorial goes through the recent controversy in Delhi regarding Parliamentary secretaries and suggests solution to avoid future dispute.

Important points

  • Recently the issue of Delhi government appointing MLA’s as Parliamentary secretaries,the office of secretary being office of profit and consequent disqualification threat looming over the legislators has been politicised.
  • The matter is essentially a mix of two legal questions: whether the post of Parliamentary secretary paid or unpaid is an office of profit and whether MLAs are given the positions only to get around the constitutional limits on number of ministers.
  • These matters should be settled through Election Commission and Courts.
  • There politicization unnecessary.
  • The EC will have to go by set of tests evolved by Supreme Court on the matter.
  • Further several High Courts have ruled that parliamentary secretaries are essentially appointed to counter the constitutional limits ministers.

Concluding Remarks
Such questions arise because the term office of profit and post of parliamentary secretary do not have a clear definition.
A legislative solution applicable across the country is needed.
