KATHMANDU: The Supreme Court (SC) has issued a show cause notice against the new election related provision that has barred candidates who have been convicted for involvement in certain criminal cases.
Acting upon a writ petition filed by Advocate Ram Chandra Poudel challenging the provision of the Election Ordinance, a single bench of Justice Tarka Raj Bhatta on Sunday ordered the defendants to furnish clarification in writing within 15 days as why the move was taken.
The bench sought clarification from the Office of President, the Chairman of Council of Ministers, the Prime Minister and the Office of Council of Ministers, Ministry of Law, Justice, Federal Affairs and Parliamentary Affairs and Election Commission as the defendants.
In his petition, the petitioner has argued that either all those convicted of criminal offence should be barred from taking part in the election or all the accused should be disqualified from taking part in the election since all sorts of criminal charges are punishable.
