India: Kerala looks to adopt recall

Looks like another Indian state will adopt the recall --the Kerala, as the Kerala institute of local administration (Kila) is forwarding a proposal.

From this description, it is a very tough recall law:
According to the act, if voters feel that their elected representative is inept or corrupt after two years, they can press for the Right To Recall. A no-confidence motion can be initiated against the tainted representative and three-fourth members will write to the district collector saying they have lost confidence in the candidate. The State Election Commission can then order a recall election.

Note that the states of Punjab, Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh have already adopted the recalls.
