SC asks original files from EC in response to writ filed by UML Chair Oli

2021 Sep 21, 18:52, Kathmandu
Lawyers representing Speaker of the House of Representatives, Agni Prasad Sapkota, have started placing their arguments before the constitutional bench of the Supreme Court, in Kathmandu, on July 4, 2021.

The Supreme Court (SC) has ordered an original copy of the file pertaining to the party disassociation after hearing the writ petition regarding the dismissal of 14 lawmakers recommended by the CPN UML.

A division bench comprising SC judges Deepak Kumar Karki and  Kumar Chudal today issued an order asking for the file from the Election Commission to discuss whether or not an interim order needs to be issued on the writ. The bench decided to demand the file regarding the EC August 25 decision in regard to the disassociation from the party.

Similarly, the court has required the August 29 original file in regard to the case relating to Speaker Agni Prasad Sapkota and the original file about the letter dispatched on August 20 by the Lumbini Province Speaker. It may be noted that UML Chair KP Sharma Oli had moved the SC against the EC for its endorsement to form a new party verifying the signatures of 14 lawmakers who faced action from the party.

Likewise, Oli has accused HoR Speaker Sapkota of not relieving 14 lawmakers from their positions despite informing of the same by the party. The petition has named 14 lawmakers, the HoR Speaker, EC, and the Lumbini Province Assembly Speaker as the defendants.
