HoR Dissolution: Next date of hearing fixed for Tuesday
Kathmandu, May 30 (RSS):Kalika Khadka
The hearing on the writ petitions filed at the Supreme Court (SC) against the House of Representatives (HoR) dissolution could not enter into the theoretical issue on Sunday as well but ended the hearing amid the disputes on formation of bench.
The next date of hearing on HoR dissolution has been fixed for Tuesday.
The legal practitioners on behalf of the writ petitioners raised their concerns on the formation of the constitutional bench that comprises Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher JBR, Justices Dipak Kumar Karki, Dr Ananda Mohan Bhattarai, Tej Bahadur KC and Bam Kumar Shrestha.
The legal practitioners have put their demand asking the disassociation of Justices KC and Shrestha from the bench.
The legal practitioners have argued that Justice KC was also involved in the hearing of HoR dissolution previously and Shrestha issued the order in the case against the unification of CPN.
The HoR was dissolved on May 22 as the new government could not be formed as per the Article 76 (5) of the Constitution of Nepal. A total of 30 writ petitions have been lodged at the SC on both for and against of the HoR dissolution.
