Candidates can be disqualified if info not disclosed

Candidates fighting elections can be disqualified if they fail to disclose information about assets and liabilities of even their spouse and dependent children, the Supreme Court has held.

A bench of justices Surinder Singh Nijjar (since retired) and A K Sikri said that a person contesting elections is also under legal obligation to disclose information on his or her criminal antecedents and educational qualifications.
