Chandni aka Aslam Pasha Candidacy (India)

A transgender woman will contest the Mysore City Corporation (MCC) election scheduled for March 7, 2013. Chandni aka Aslam Chandini is looking for a national party’s ticket. The major hurdle is that Pasha seeks a ticket from Ward 42 which is reserved for SCs. Reservation in elections is based on social category and for women. If Chandini is eligible, Chandini can contest in the reserved ward too, or else the best thing for her is to move to another ward. There is no reservation for transgender in India.
