Bill for indirect election of mayors passed by Tamil Nadu Assembly
24 June 2016 Current Affairs GK: The Tamil Nadu Assembly has  passed through a headcount the Bill to conduct indirect election of Mayors on 23 June 2016.

The Tamil Nadu Municipal Corporation Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2016 seeks to ensure election of Mayors by councillors and not by the people directly.

At present, election to the municipal corporation are conducted on party basis. It has been brought to the notice of the government that councils of certain municipal corporations are not functioning properly since the mayor does not enjoy the support of the councillors. It is considered that if the mayor of a corporation enjoys the support of a majority of councillors, the councillors can function in a better manner. 

Therefore, the government has decided to elect a mayor of the corporation indirectly by councillors from among themselves. To give effect to the above decision, the government has decided to amend the law relating to the municipal corporations suitably .

The bill says that accordingly amendments are proposed to various municipal corporation acts governing Chennai, Madurai and Coimbatore.
