Writ against CJ-led govt: Hearing deferred
According to the list prepared by CJ Regmi himself, the hearing on the writ was to be conducted before a special bench of Justice Girish Chandra Lal. However, as the hearing was placed 58th on a list of 59 case hearing s, it was deferred citing a lack of time.
On February 27, advocate Om Prakash Aryal had filed a writ against the parties' proposal to form a CJ-led election government. In the writ, Aryal had argued that the constitution does not envision a former Justice, let alone a sitting chief justice, taking up the post of the executive head. Article 106 (1) of the Interim Constitution provisions that the CJ or a Justice can be deputed for judicial enquiry into matters of national importance.
