Election Commissioner Navin B Chawla, whose removal has been sought by NDA MPs for alleged misconduct, on Thursday asserted that he cannot be sacked without the advice of the Union Council of Ministers.

Seeking dismissal of the PIL filed by senior BJP leader Jaswant Singh for his removal, Chawla sought to differ with CEC BB Tandon who had said that any complaint against an Election Commissioner had to be sent to him by the President for recommendation under Article 324(5) of the Constitution.
