KATHMANDU — The Supreme Court has issued a show cause notice to government on the nominations of 21 ambassadors on Friday.
A single bench of Acting Chief Justice Sushila Karki has asked the Office from the President Office, Office of the Prime Minister Office and Council of Ministers, Constitutional Council and designated ambassadors to submit clarifications within 15 days why the recommendations were not inclusive and furnish reasons and the basis of the recommendations.
The notice was issued responding to a writ petition filed by Rakshya Ram Harijan. In his writ filed on Thursday, Harijan had said the decision to recommendation ambassadors for 21 countries ‘is against the Constitution of Nepal and violates Articles 38 (4), 40 (1), 42 (1) and 282 of the constitution’.
The Cabinet on Tuesday recommended 21 names as ambassadors for various nations.
