Only 7 justices left in Supreme Court


KATHMANDU:
The Supreme Court with a total strength of 24 justices-permanent and temporary- has now been left with just seven after five temporary justices retired on Wednesday.
Justices  Bharat Raj Upreti, Baidyanath Upadhyay, Tark Raj Bhatta, Gyanendra Bahadur Karki, Dr Bharat Bahadur Karki and Kamal Narayan Das who were appointed for two years had their term expired today.
The Judicial Council meeting on Tuesday failed to take any decision for the re-appointment of temporary justices, citing the need of new legislation for this thereby compelling the five justices to leave the court. The daily case list maintained at the SC website deleted the names of all five justice but their names and photos are still in place.
The meeting of the Council was held at the residence of the Prime Minister as he is taking charge of the Law Ministry too.
The SC with ten benches often runs single, division and full benches, adding more than 300 cases and writ petitions in a day.
However, the Judicial Council says necessary law was likely to be passed within three days in the form of an Ordinance because no parliamentary hearing was needed for this.
