Madras High Court Advocates' Association (MHAA) has informed the Madras High Court that its elections, which are scheduled to be conducted on 9th January, 2023, would be conducted in a free and fair manner.

The submission was made before the bench of Justice R Mahadevan and Justice Sathya Narayana Prasad in response to a plea filed by an advocate alleging large scale irregularities in the manner of conducting allegations.
The Association also informed the court that all the applications were being scrutinized diligently to ensure that the elections would be conducted without any bias. The Association also submitted that it would ensure the principle of one bar one vote is followed so that an advocate casts only one vote even if he/she is member in different bars.
Noting that the petition was a premature one and that the Association was bound to conduct the elections as per law, the court adjourned the case by three weeks.
In October, the court had directed the Association to conduct its elections in a free and fair manner to elect office bearers within a period of 90 days.
Case Title: S Mahaveer Shivaji v. the Advocate General and others
Case No: WP 33639 of 2022 (Bar Council Cases)
