An Apex Court Constitution Bench headed by Chief Justice HL Dattu passed the brief order.

AAP counsel Prashant Bhushan urged the court to direct an early election.

Earlier this month, with BJP, AAP and Congress expressing themselves against formation of a new government and seeking a fresh mandate to end the eight-month-long political uncertainty, Delhi  will now be heading for fresh polls.

A notification issued by the Home Ministry said that President Pranab Mukherjee has dissolved the "Legislative Assembly of the National Capital Territory of Delhi with immediate effect" on November 4.

The Union Cabinet had recommended the dissolution of the Assembly following recommendation of LG Najeeb Jung after talks on Monday with BJP, Congress and AAP which expressed inability to form government and sought fresh mandate.

While the fresh elections may be held early next year, the process for the November 25 by-elections to three constituencies, for which last date of nominations is today, was revoked by the Election Commission on Wednesday.



The Election Commission cancelled the notification for by-elections to three assembly constituencies in Delhi following the dissolution of the state assembly.

The Election Commission had on October 25 announced that Mehrauli, Tughlakabad and Krishna Nagar would go to the polls on November 25.

BJP legislators from the three constituencies were elected to the Lok Sabha in May. Delhi has been under President's rule since February 17.

AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal resigned as Delhi Chief Minister on February 14 after failing to table Jan Lokpal Bill in the assembly.
