Madras High Court Madras High Court stole the show in the embattled Tamil political scene, taking control of the situation saying there will be no floor test till it orders: File Photo

Chennai: Without staying the order of disqualification of 18 rebel AIADMK MLAs, the Madras high court on Wednesday ordered that no floor test should be held in the assembly till further orders.

Justice M. Duraiswamy gave the order while hearing the petition from legislators owing allegiance to T.T.V. Dhinakaran challenging their disqualification by Speaker P. Dhanapal on Monday.

The judge, while extending the stay on a floor test, also ordered that no by-elections will be held to the seats rendered vacant by the disqualification of MLAs.

The court had last week directed that no floor test will be held till Wednesday, on a petition filed by opposition party DMK.

The DMK party had petitioned the court to order Governor C. Vidyasagar Rao to convene the assembly and ask chief minister K. Palaniswami to prove his majority.
