The Delhi High Court today reserved its order on Aam Aadmi Party MLA disqualification case. 20 disqualified AAP MLAs had filed a plea challenging their disqualification in office-of-profit case.

A bench headed by justices Sanjiv Khanna and Chander Shekhar decided to keep the final decision pending. 

The Election Commission had asked the MLAs in question to be disqualified after which President Ram Nath Kovind also gave his nod to the EC's recommendation. The MLAs then moved the HC challenging their disqualification.

The MLAs on Tuesday called the EC's order "complete violation of natural justice". 

They also stated that they were not given the opportunity to explain their stand before the poll panel.
