KATHMANDU — A writ petition has been filed at the Supreme Court (SC) challenging the legality of the oath taken by President Bidhya Devi Bhandari from ousted Chief Justice (CJ) Gopal Prasad Parajuli.
Advocates Hem Mani Subedi and Narayan Kharel registered the writ at the apex court on Wednesday. The hearing on the writ will begin from Thursday.
A day after apex court justice Ishwar Prasad Khatiwada ordered the court administration to accept the petition, the petition was formally registered Wednesday. Earlier the court’s registrar had refused to register the petition.
The apex court administration has immediately scheduled the initial hearing on the case for Thursday after registering the petition.
The petitioners have sought the apex court to bar Bhandari from continuing her duties as the head of the state until she takes fresh oath from the legitimate chief justice claiming that the oath administered to president by CJ Parajuli, who had alreday been relieved from the post by the Judicial Council, was unconstitutional,
Ousted CJ Parajuli had administered the oath of office and secrecy to President Bhandari amidst a special function in Sheetal Niwas in Maharajgunj, Kathmandu on March 14.
“The administering of oath by a person having no right has let the people down and seriously violated the principle of rule of law,” the writ stated.
The writ has made President Bidhya Devi Bhandari, President’s Office Sheetal Niwas, Prime Minister KP Shamra Oli, PM and Cabinet Office Singha Durbar, House Speaker Krishna Bahadur Mahara, Speaker’s Office, Singha Durbar, Chairman of National Assembly, retired CJ Parajuli, Opposition Party leader and Constitutional Council Secretarait as defendants.Follow @gorkhapost
