Writ filed seeking annulment of Foreign Minister's oath

2021 Sep 29, 6:59, 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.

A writ petition has been filed at the Supreme Court on Tuesday seeking an order to annul the oath taken by Foreign Minister Dr Narayan Khadka. In the writ petition filed by advocate Bishal Neupane, the Office of the President, Office of the Prime Minister, and Council of Ministers, the Prime Minister has been named as defendants.

The petition argues that the oath was taken without making any law to that end and hence is unconstitutional. The structure envisaged by the law was not followed. The writ petition seeks an order stopping Dr Khadka from serving as a minister until he is sworn in as per the Constitution.

The hearing on the writ petition is scheduled for today.
