KATHMANDU: The Supreme Court has refused to issue an interim order in a writ petition seeking to stop re-polling in Bajura’s Budhiganga Municipality.
Following controversy in Budhiganga, the Election Commission had scheduled re-election there on July 7, against which the writ petition had been filed.
Dal Bahadur Saud of Budhiganga had filed a writ petition in the Supreme Court demanding to stop the scheduled re-polling and proceed with counting of votes from the ballot box of the election held on May 13.
However, the division bench of acting Chief Justice Deepak Kumar Karki and Justice Susmalata Mathema refused to issue an interim order to restrict the re-polling.
With the quashing of the writ, the Election Commission is to move ahead for the election in Budhiganga on July 7.
