NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court (HC) has set aside the order by the Election Commission to disqualify 20 Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs for holding offices of profit. The 20 MLAs had been disqualified from office by the President, on the recommendation of the Election Commission. Reacting to the decision, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal congratulated the people of Delhi. "Truth prevails. The representatives who had been elected by the people of Delhi were ousted in an improper manner. The Delhi High Court has given justice to the people of Delhi. This is a big victory for the people of Delhi. I congratulate the people of Delhi," he tweeted.

HC said that the notification disqualifying AAP MLAs was bad in law and remanded their plea back to the Election Commission which will hear it again. HC said there was a violation of natural justice and no oral hearing was given to AAP MLAs before disqualifying them as legislators. The 20 AAP members will continue to hold their seats. The EC will now have to take another look at the office of profit allegations against the 20 MLAs.
