Impeachment will go through parliamentary discussion: Minister Badu

2022 Feb 13, 16:58, Kathmandu

Minister for Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Dilendra Prasad Badu has said the parliament would conduct a discussion over the impeachment against Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher Rana. Talking to media persons at the federal parliament secretariat, the Minister said, "The parliament will hold discussions on the proposal. A process has moved ahead for an end to the constitutional stalemate.”

Ninety-eight lawmakers of the ruling parties today filed an impeachment motion against CJ Rana, putting 21 accusations on him.

Following the filing of the motion, Nepali Congress Pushpa Bhusal said the CJ failed to prove his effective role in judiciary, prompting them to seek his removal from the post.

 He has been alleged of not conducting the Constitutional bench effectively, exerting influence on several appointments, not-implementing the Supreme Court reports and failing to deliver the duties on basis of the power balance, thus creating a disappointing atmosphere in judiciary.

Bhusal further argued that they had to file the impeachment motion against the CJ, as he failed to deliver as per the Constitution.

Meanwhile, chief whip of CPN (Maoist Centre) Dev Prasad Gurung said the CJ could not perform his leading role in judiciary fairly. “The independent judiciary is hampered by the deadlock for three and half months and failed to perform as per the Constitution and democratic norms and values.
