Landmark Judgments

Union of India Vs. Association for Democratic Reforms and Another, 2001, is a landmark case with respect to the Right to Vote that decided whether before voting, voters have the right to know relevant particulars about their candidates. The Supreme Court held that “in a democracy, voters have the ultimate right to choose. For maintaining purity of elections and healthy democracy, voters are required to be educated and well informed about the contesting candidates”. This judgment laid down the list of information that is to be disclosed by every candidate contesting elections. It included the disclosure of their educational qualifications, their assets and liabilities, and their past criminal records, if any. It is considered a landmark judgment in the history of Right to Vote because it empowered the voters and gave them the authority to know their candidates before electing them.
