Observing that the petition is misconceived, the Karnataka High Court dismissed a public interest litigation filed by one Murali Krishna Brahmandam seeking directions to the State and Chief Election Commissioner to not conduct the 2023 Assembly election in the state, but to directly elect people's representatives from all political parties as petitioner will elaborate.

A division bench of Chief Justice Ritu Raj Awasthi and Justice S Sujatha said,

"The averments made in the writ petition do not make out any case for grant of indulgence. The writ petition, being misconceived, is dismissed."

The petition had sought for directions to the respondents to NOT conduct the 2023 Assembly election but to conduct direct election to directly elect representational people's representatives from all political parties as Petitioner will elaborate for the whole Karnataka state area - a move that is needed to make the Karnataka area more equitable to all.

Further it has sought directions to respondents and political parties to come together and ask the Petitioner to act as the Interim Representative of Karnataka to RESTRUCTURE the Karnataka area government correctly - a need of Karnataka area people and businesses that cannot be fulfilled otherwise.

The bench went through the averments made in the petition and said, "The petitioner is aggrieved with the Assembly elections held under the Representation of the People Act, 1951 (for short 'the said Act'). There is no challenge to the provisions of the said Act. The averments made in the writ petition do not make out any case for grant of indulgence."

Accordingly it dismissed the petition.
