Kumaraswamy government in Karnataka to take floor test on Thursday to prove majority in the Assembly

The Assembly Speaker K R Ramesh had said that he would take a decision regarding the floor test only after the Supreme Court order tomorrow.

Amidst the ongoing political crisis in Karnataka that has been threatening the stability of the 13-month-old coalition government of Congress and JD(S), the Kumaraswamy government will face the floor test on July 18 at 11 am.

Karnataka Congress leader Siddaramaiah had announced earlier today that the Kumaraswamy government will prove its majority in the State Assembly tomorrow but it was yet to be confirmed by the Speaker. The Assembly Speaker K R Ramesh had said that he would take a decision regarding the floor test only after the Supreme Court order tomorrow. But now the speaker has decided that the floor test will take place at 11 am on Thursday.

The Supreme Court had ordered the Speaker and the rebel MLAs on July 12 to maintain status quo regarding the resignations and disqualification of the MLAs till July 16 when the next hearing is scheduled to happen. Following the Supreme Court order of status quo, Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy had announced in the State Assembly the same day that he intended to prove majority.

The Supreme Court had asked the Speaker on 11th July to take a decision on the resignations of rebel Congress-JD(S) MLAs. However, the Speaker did not take any decision after which the Supreme Court had passed the order of maintaining the status quo.

Sixteen MLAs belonging to the ruling Congress-JD(S) coalition in Karnataka has resigned, plunging the government into crisis. 14 of the rebel MLAs are currently staying in Mumbai. The rulling coalition has 116 members including 78 Congress, 37 JD(S) and 1 BSP and 1 speaker. If the resignations are accepted, the coalition number will reduce to 100, which will mean BJP will have majority with 105 MLAs.
