What is the constitutional provision regarding the removal of an Election Commissioner?
On an impeachment motion passed by the Cabinet
On the directions of the Supreme Court
On an office order of the Chief Election Commissioner
None of the above
The CEC and the Election Commissioners have a tenure of six years, or up to the age of 65, whichever is earlier, and enjoy the same status and receive salary and perks as available to Supreme Court judges. The CEC and the Election Commissioners enjoy the same decision-making powers which is suggestive of the fact that their powers are at par with each other. However, Article 324(5) does not provide similar protection to the Election Commissioners and it merely says that they cannot be removed from office except on the recommendation of the CEC. There was a petition filed on this issue in the SC to seek greater clarity on what exact the recommendation of CEC mean in this context. Is the removal process same as that of the CEC because they enjoy nearly the same powers; or is it different.
