KATHMANDU — The Parliamentary Hearing Special Committee (PHSC) on Sunday unanimously endorsed the recommendation of Acting Chief JusticeSushila Karki as Chief Justice (CJ).

On April10, the Constitutional Council had recommended Karki to the CJ post; however, the hearing was delayed owing to disputes among major parties on formation of the hearing committee.

She is also chairperson of the IT Committee and Case Management Committee at the Supreme Court. She is a member of the Constitutional Bench.
