 A parliamentary hearing for proposed Chief Justice Bishwambhar Prasad Shrestha has begun.

Prior to this, a meeting of the Parliamentary Hearing Committee held at the Singha Durbar responded to the complaints registered against the proposed Chief Justice.

 Following the completion of the hearing, the meeting will decide whether to endorse the recommendation made by the Constitutional Council to appoint him on the CJ post or not. If the recommendation is endorsed, the President shall appoint Shrestha on the post.

 The post of CJ has been lying vacant since August 5 after erstwhile CJ Harikrishna Karki was retired due to age-limit.

 The Constitutional Council had on August 3 recommended him for the appointment as the CJ. The Committee on August 9 had sought complaints, if any, against the proposed Chief Justice, and it has received three complaints. The complaint was required to be in decent language and supported by evidence.---
