Writ seeking constitution interpretation rejected

KATHMANDU, FEB 10 - The Supreme Court administration on Sunday refused to register a writ petition calling for an interpretation of the constitution for the appointments to vacant posts in various constitutional bodies in the absence of parliament.

The apex court administration refused to entertain the petition filed by Advocate Chandra Kant Gyawali arguing that two other writs of similar nature—filed by Advocate Rajesh Silwal, Jay Ram Shrestha and another by Advocate Achyut Prasad Kharel—are sub judice.

Gyawali had presented the writ before the court administration on Wednesday. Another claim of the plaintiff includes court’s interpretation of the “appropriate alternatives” as stated in the verdict that placed a term cap on Constituent Assembly in November 2011 in case the elected body failed to deliver the constitution by the deadline.

Further, the petitioner also sought the court’s intervention in appointing a government through “another democratic process” after the repeated calls of the President failed to make any headway.
