MDMK Chief Vaiko convicted in a sedition case gets one-year-imprisonment
By The News Minute 05-Jul-2019
According to MDMK leader Nanmaran, Vaiko has been granted a suspension of sentence for one month under CrPC 389, that allows suspension of sentence pending an appeal by a convicted person. Vaiko was expected to file his nomination for the Rajya Sabha election on Saturday. However, some experts say that since sedition is not listed as one of the offenses under the Representation of People's Act, 1951 for which disqualification is attracted regardless of the prison term, he may be allowed to contest. As per the Representation of People's Act 1951, someone who is convicted of an offense and is sentenced to imprisonment for two years or more, they are disqualified from contesting elections, for six years after their release.
