AIADMK Chief Jayalalithaa is disqualified from contesting elections for another ten years, the Tamil Nadu government has said in a gazette notification.

 

"Consequent upon the conviction of Selvi J. Jayalalithaa, Member of the Legislative Assembly, she stands disqualified for being a Member of the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly from the date of conviction, i.e., the 27th day of September, 2014 for the period of her sentence (four years)," the gazette notification dated November 8 read. It was issued by Speaker of the Tamil Nadu Assembly P. Dhanapal.

 

It also said that she ‘shall continue to be disqualified for a further period of six years since her release in terms of the existing Section 8 of the Representation of the People Act, 1951,’

 

The notification also said that Srirangam Assembly Constituency, represented by Jayalalithaa ‘shall be deemed to have become vacant from the date of her conviction,’ September 27.

 

Although media was given to understand on November 9 that a notification declaring Srirangam seat as vacant was issued, only on Thursday it has been officially released by the state government, the Times of India reported.

 

Also, the details pertaining to disqualification became known only on Thursday.

 

Jayalalithaa was convicted and sentenced to four years in jail besides a fine of Rs 100 crore in a 18-year-old disproportionate assets case by a special court in Bangalore. She was released from jail in Bangalore on October 17 as per the Supreme Court order granting her bail in the case.
