The Supreme Court on Monday A single bench of Justice Girish Chandra Lal was responding to the PIL that challengs the endorsement of an ordinance concerning removal of constitutional difficulties , which led to the formation of the Regmi government.
Acting upon a writ petition filed by Advocate Subhash Acharya, a single bench of Justice Girish Chandra Lal issued the notice. The hearing had been deferred for 18 times, earlier.
Advocate Acharya had filed the petition on March 17, arguing that in approving the ordinance on removing constitutional difficulties, the president had misused his powers relating to such an exercise, and this had affected the basic structure of the Interim Constitution.
The other defendants in the PIL include Regmi, UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal, CPN-UML Chairman Jhala Nath Khanal and Madhesi Janadhikar Forum-Loktantrik Chairman Bijaya Gachhadar.
