KATHMANDU: A lawyer close to Prime Minister KP Oli has raised questions in the bench that the judges of the newly formed Constitutional Bench cannot continue hearing on the writ petitions filed against the dissolution of the House of Parliament.

Earlier, lawyers including Rajaram Ghimire, who had filed a writ demanding the appointment of Prime Minister as per Article 76 (5) had filed a case claiming the justices in the newly formed Bench can not continue the ongoing hearing on the writ petitions filed against HoR dissolution.

After the government attorneys’ concern on the issue, Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher Rana urged the government lawyers to withdraw the case.

“You have the obligation to maintain the dignity of the Bench,” Chief Justice Rana said addressing the government lawyers, “If you do not withdraw the case, you might be sued on defamation allegation.”
