KATHMANDU: The Supreme Court (SC) will continue the hearing of the writ petition filed by Hikmat Karki, the CPN-UML Koshi Province parliamentary party leader, today.

During Tuesday’s hearing, advocates representing Chief Minister Uddav Thapa, who is the opposing party in the case, presented their arguments before a full bench comprising Supreme Court Justices Sapana Pradhan Malla, Kumar Chudal, and Nahakul Subedi.

The petitioners will have their turn to present counter-arguments today since Wednesday was a public holiday due to Krishna Janmasthami.

On August 21, Chief Minister Thapa sought a vote of confidence from the provincial assembly, with Nepali Congress (NC) lawmaker Israel Mansuri, who presided over the session, also casting a vote.

In his petition, Karki seeks a mandate to be appointed as the Chief Minister in accordance with the Constitution, citing the alleged unconstitutional nature of the vote of confidence received by NC parliamentary party leader Thapa.
