Congress leaders Kapil Sibal and Abhishek Manu Singhvi, who represented the Congress and the JD(S) in the Supreme Court, said their entire aim of moving court was to ensure transparency.
The apex court has ordered a live stream of the floor test in order to ensure fairness. Congress-JD(S) settle for the livestreaming judgement.
The Supreme Court will on Saturday hear at 1030 hrs the writ petition jointly filed by Congress-JD(S) challenging the appointment of BJP MLA KG Bopaiah as Protem Speaker.
Congress communications in-charge Randeep Surjewala said according to convention, the senior-most MLA is appointed the pro-tem speaker and the Governor should have followed past precedents.
Bopaiah was the Karnataka Assembly speaker from 2009 to 2013.
Top Congress leaders met today soon after Governor Vajubhai Vala appointed the BJP MLA as the pro tem speaker, and decided that the matter should be challenged in court.
