Sir, can you please explain the difference between floor test and a composite floor test.

Floor test is usually done of sitting CM or any one candidate claiming to have majority. In regular floor test if CM or candidate claiming to hold majority fails then his government falls. Whereas in composite floor test MLA'S are told to choose from two rival claimants. This is done when two persons or factions claim that they have majority support. Composite floor test is not mentioned in constitution, it is an innovation of SC in 1998, when it ordered to hold composite floor test in UP between Jagdambika Pal from Congress and Kalyan Singh from BJP.
