NEW DELHI, July 10 � Citing Constitutional and legal provisions, the Election Commission today rejected the petition of Opposition-backed Presidential nominee PA Sangma camp against UPA candidate Pranab Mukherjee�s nomination saying the same is not maintainable before it, reports PTI.

The Sangma camp had petitioned the EC against the decision of the Presidential poll Returning Officer for accepting the nomination papers of UPA candidate Pranab Mukherjee, despite their objections to the same on the ground that he allegedly occupied office of profit, a charge denied by the Mukherjee camp.

In response to the July 9 complaint filed before it jointly by Subramanian Swamy, Satya Pal Jain and Bhartruhari Mahtab, the Election Commission said all doubts and disputes with regard to the Presidential election will be decided by the Supreme Court. �...As per the above-mentioned Constitutional and legal provisions, your petition dated 9th July, 2012, is not maintainable before the Election Commission,� an EC order said.
