Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and YSR Congress Party President YS Jaganmohan Reddy was given an unexpected shock by the Central Election Commission. Jaganmohan Reddy’s election as permanent president of YCP has been issued as invalid. The Central Election Commission has decided that no permanent president or permanent posts will apply to any political party in a democracy. The Election Commission has disclosed in a statement that the orders related to these directives have been sent to the party’s general secretary.
“In a democracy, a party does not have a permanent president or a permanent appointment to a post. Elections should be held for parties from time to time. It should be done in accordance with the election rules. All the registration of parties in this country is done only after accepting the rules given by the EC. Appointing a permanent party president is against EC rules. Even though I have written letters to YCP many times and asked for information, he has not responded.
With this, we believe that the news in the media that he has been elected as the permanent president of YCP is true. Electing a permanent president is undemocratic. Such is not valid,” the EC said in its order. It said that the party’s general secretary has been directed to conduct an internal inquiry regarding the appointment of the permanent president and send the report to the Central Election Commission.
