THE CONSTITUTION (THIRTY-THIRD AMENDMENT) ACT, 1974

Statement of Objects and Reasons appended to the Constitution (Thirty-fifth Amendment) Bill, 1974 which was enacted as the Constitution (Thirty-third Amendment) Act, 1974

STATEMENT OF OBJECTS AND REASONS

Articles 101 (3) (b) and 190(3) (b) of the Constitution permit a member of either House of Parliament or a member of a House of the Legislature of a State to resign his seat by writing under his hand addressed to the Speaker or the Chairman, as the case may be. In the recent past, there have been instances where coercive measures have been resorted to for compelling members of a Legislative Assembly to resign their membership. If this is not checked, it might become difficult for Legislatures to function in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution. It is, therefore proposed to amend the above two articles to impose a requirement as to acceptance of the resignation by the Speaker or the Chairman and to provide that the resignation shall not be accepted by the Speaker or the Chairman if he is satisfied after making such inquiry as he thinks fit that the resignation is not voluntary or genuine.

2. The Bill seeks to achieve the above object.
