Chief Minister Yeddyurappa should not take any major decision in the meanwhile, the court says.
The Supreme Court on Friday ordered that a floor test be conducted in the Karnataka Assembly on Saturday at 4 p.m. for BJP’s B.S. Yeddyurappa, who was sworn in on Thursday as Chief Minister, to prove his majority.
Mr. Yeddyurappa cannot take any major decision before the floor test, the court said. The pro-tem Speaker will take decisions in accordance with the law on the floor test.
The court also said no Anglo-Indian MLA can be nominated to the Assembly.
The court was hearing a petition filed by the post poll Congress-JD(S) combine against the decision of Governor Vajubhai Vala to invite the BJP to form a government and to nominate an Anglo-Indian member to the Assembly.
