Adv. Haris Beeran named IUML’s Rajya Sabha candidate

The Indian Union Muslim League  has nominated Supreme Court lawyer Adv. Haris Beeran as the party's candidate for the Rajya Sabha.

The Indian Union Muslim League (IUML), the second biggest ally in the Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) in Kerala, has nominated Supreme Court lawyer and KMCC Delhi president Adv. Haris Beeran as the party’s candidate for the Rajya Sabha.

The announcement was made by IUML Kerala state president Syed Sadiq Ali Shihab Thangal following a state committee meeting held on Monday at Thiruvananthapuram.

The election for three Rajya Sabha seats will take place on June 25, with Beeran’s nomination being filed today. The party is optimistic that Beeran’s legal expertise will enhance the IUML’s performance in the Upper House.

Thangal emphasized the strategic importance of Beeran’s background in law, highlighting how his experience would benefit the party’s legislative endeavors.

In his statement, Adv. Haris Beeran expressed gratitude towards the party leadership for their confidence in him and reiterated his commitment to safeguarding the Constitution.

“Since I am based in Delhi, I feel this big responsibility has come at a time when the country is passing through difficult times with even the Constitution coming under duress. We will be doing our best to see that the Constitution remains intact,” said Beeran.

He also mentioned his involvement in the ongoing case regarding the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), which is being represented by senior lawyer Kapil Sibal in the top court.

Adv. Haris Beeran has been a pivotal figure for the IUML in various Supreme Court cases. His father, V.K. Beeran, also had a notable legal career as a former additional advocate general.

The decision to nominate Adv. Haris Beeran came after careful consideration of several potential candidates, League leadership said.

State General Secretary PMA Salam, Youth League National General Secretary Adv. Faisal Babu, and others were in contention for the seat. However, Sadiqali Shihab Thangal’s support, along with endorsements from four time parliamentarian ET Muhammad Basheer and other leaders, ultimately secured Beeran’s candidacy.
