New law afoot to make parliamentary hearing further accountable


KATHMANDU:- The Nepal Law Commission is drafting a law also including the conducts of parliamentary hearing committee members so as to make the hearing further accountable and effective in line with the letter and spirit of the Constitution.
At today’s meeting of the parliamentary hearing committee of the federal parliament, parliamentary hearing on the names proposed by constitution council, council of ministers and judicial council has been proposed a mandatory provision in the legal draft being prepared by the commission.
The law drafting is being made to replace the existing law which considers endorsement of the names of the proposed individuals if the parliamentary hearing does not take place for the same within 45 days.
Commission secretary Leela Devi Gadtaula said the law has been drafted inserting the provision realizing that solution should not be explored beyond the parliament. She further said that even the constitution has not envisaged vacuum in the people’s representative body.
The draft has also included a provision that parliamentary hearing member would not be able to attend the hearing if his/her conflict of interest is established with the individual undergoing parliamentary hearing.
On the occasion, Commission Chair Jageswor Subedi and vice-chair Laxmi Prasad Mainali shared the examples of parliamentary hearing laws of other counties and informed that they would consult with Nepal Bar Association, universities and civil society to make the draft further practical.
Meanwhile, the meeting has directed the secretariat to prepare a detail information about the provision related to parliamentary hearing, meeting, process and hearing on individuals proposed for different posts since the beginning of the practice of the parliamentary hearing in Nepal to this date.
