Article 326 Debate Summary
Draft Article 289B (Article 326 of the Indian Constitution 1950) was absent in the draft Constitution 1948. The Chairman of the Drafting Committee introduced this provision on 16 June 1949. It clearly declared that elections to the legislatures would be based on universal adult suffrage.
A member opposed this draft article saying that adult suffrage was not theoretically or practically possible. He believed that the Article ‘violates the principles of democracy’ and implied that the Indian electorate was not enlightened, and that parliamentary democracy in India would fail.
The President reminded the member that the draft Article was merely restating a principle which had already been accepted by the Assembly. There was no further dispute and the House accepted the draft article. The draft Article 289B was accepted on the same day without any debate.
