Editorial: A Defence for Overreach: The ECI Appointments Case | Ayush Mehta & Prakhar Raghuvanshi

In the editorial for Volume VII Issue II, the Editors-in-Chief, Ayush Mehta and Prakhar Raghuvanshi, have attempted to defend the judgment of the constitution bench in Anoop Baranwal v. Union of India which overhauled the process of appointment to the election commission. To contextualise their argument, the authors have discussed the pivotal role of the election commission followed by a history of appointments. In this process, the defence of the judgment is rooted in the theory which relies on role of conventions to fulfill constitutional silences.

The editorial provides for an overview of Volume VII Issue II and briefly touches upon the activities carried out by the Centre for Comparative Constitutional Law and Administrative Law.
