KATHMANDU: President Dr. Ram Baran Yadav has reiterated that he will not take any steps against the interim constitution.
During his meeting with the officials of the Nepal Bar Association, the president informed that he will take only constitutional steps and would do so after consulting all the major stakeholders.
President Yadav said that he has not done anything against beyond Article 38.1 of the interim constitution.
Talking to media after the meeting Chairperson of the NBA Karki informed that the legal practitioners have urged the president not to take any unconstitutional steps as he is the patron of the constitution.
The delegation of Nepali lawyers handed over a memorandum to the president urging him not to accept the decision of the major four political parties.
The NBA reminded the president that the parties’ decision to appoint the chief justice is against the principle of power separations.
NBA chair quoted President as saying, “I assure you that I would move ahead by only using the authority provided to me by the constitution.”
Meanwhile, addressing a program in Capital former President of the Constitutional Committee Nilambar Acharya has said that the elevation of the Chief Justice to the head of the interim election government after his walkout from the Supreme Court is meaningless.
CJ Khil Raj Regmi’s appointment to the top job only after his resignation from the SC is meaningless and his appointment, in this case, would signify the state’s distrust to the CJ, Acharya said. However, Acharya maintained that the CJ’s leadership is the last option for the outlet to the nation albeit its bitterness.
Acharya claimed that the separation of powers has already witnessed chaos at a time of the absence of the legislature and caretaker executive, which can be towed back on track through elections, he added. However, after making these statements, Acharya opined that the CJ should not assume his work in the SC after his elevation as executive head.
