At least one-yr tenure proposed for chief justice


KATHMANDU: A sub-committee led by lawmaker Laxman Lal Karna today proposed that only judges with at least one year of service remaining should be eligible for the post of chief justice. 

The proposal was made by the sub-committee while submitting its report to the Constitutional-Political Dialogue and Consensus Committee.

“We hope that the proposal would be endorsed by the full committee,” Prem Bahadur Singh, a member of the sub-committee told The Himalayan Times. 

The sub-committee claimed that chief justices appointed for less than a year recently could not implement their policies regarding judicial reforms. Many judges would lose opportunity to hold the top judicial post if the proposal is endorsed by the full committee and the Constituent Assembly without any change.

Former chief justice Anup Raj Sharma retired within three months of taking up the post, Min Bahadur Rayamajhi could serve for only six months as CJ and incumbent CJ Damodar Prasad Sharma was appointed only for seven months though he had served as acting CJ for almost 13 months. 

The panel also proposed a Federal Judicial Commission to look into the violation of code of conduct for judges, while the State Judicial Commission shall look into such cases against district judges. 

The panel has also proposed that CJ should be the ex-officio chairman of the five-member Constitutional Court to settle constitutional disputes with two other Supreme Court judges as ex-officio members and two constitutional experts as judges.
