Nepal Supreme Court defers decision on declaring the country a RepublicJune 21st, 2008 - 2:12 pm ICT by ANI
Kathmandu, June 21 (ANI): The Supreme Court (SC) of Nepal has again deferred the preliminary decision on the writ challenging the legitimacy of the decision by the Constituent Assembly (CA) declaring Nepal a Republic.
According to Nepalnews, the Supreme Court has now stated that the decision on the issue would be taken on Sunday.
The division bench comprising Judge Damodar Sharma was to pass a preliminary decision on the writ on last Sunday but it decided to defer the same till June 20.
The writ filed by one Ram Kumar Ojha has demanded that the Constituent Assembly decision be annulled stating that the incomplete Constituent Assembly - as the government has not yet nominated 26 members of the 601-member strong Constituent Assembly envisaged by the constitution could not take the decision.
