Not to tarnish integrity of judiciary-NC

08/04/2018

Kathmandu, Aug 4: Main opposition Nepali Congress has advised the authorities concerned to not work in a way to tarnish integrity, independence and effectiveness of the judiciary.
A meeting of the NC federal parliamentary party meeting today drew a conclusion that the rejection to the name of the proposed Chief Justice was not a matter of person but a blow to the judiciary.
Blaming that the Prime Minister's party whip had reversed the official decision of sending the name of the Chief Justice proposed by the PM-led Constitutional Committee for parliamentary hearing, NC commented that the move has brazenly affected the judiciary independence and impartiality.
Talking to media after the meet, NC parliamentary party chief whip Balkrishna Khand accused that the decision of the parliamentary hearing committee by ignoring the arguments of the opposition has hurt the judiciary institution rather not the single person.
"NC has seriously taken the decision of the parliamentary hearing committee in this matter. We protest the decision and will raise the issue in the Parliament. We will move ahead taking people into confidence after consultations with experts and the party(NC)", Khand asserted.
Noting that it was imperative to strike checks and balances between the judiciary, executive and legislature as per the constitutional provision, he argued the judiciary in no way can remain under the ambit of the executive even as per the constitution and democratic governance norms.
Advising the ruling side to keep in mind that the decision made brushing aside the opinion and arguments of the opposition may impact the democracy and peace process, NC said it has taken this matter a serious mistake from the decision takers.
Party President Sher Bahadur Deuba presided over the meeting in which several Members of Parliament from NC had expressed their opinions. RSS
