The Election Commission has filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court, requesting that candidates be barred from contesting more than on seat during elections. According to the reports, The Election Commission’s affidavit highlighted that candidates should be restricted from contesting more than one seat simultaneously as it is an unnecessary burden on the exchequer and is an injustice to the voters of the winning candidate. The affidavit further added that candidates vacating a seat must be made to pay for the by- election. The matter will be heard in six weeks, the Supreme Court observed.
