SC issues show cause on bid to form CJ-led government
The Supreme Court has issued a show cause notice to the President, government and four major political forces over their bid to form an election government under the leadership of Chief Justice Khil Raj Regmi.
During the preliminary hearing of a writ challenging the proposal Justice Sushila Karki issued the order demanding that the defendants furnish a written explanation within nine days (March 5).
Bharat Jangham in his writ has argued that the government under the sitting Chief Justice is unconstitutional, demanding court order for a government headed by an independent person or a former Chief Justice.
The bench has also decided to refer the case to a special bench, which is to sit on March 7. nepalnews.com
