KATHMANDU: The Supreme Court today issued a show-cause notice to the government seeking its stance on reviving the Constituent Assembly (CA) to hold its meeting, which had been scheduled for May 27.
A single bench of Chief Justice Khil Raj Regmi issued the order after conducting a hearing on a Public Interest Litigation demanding an order to revive the constitution-making body to convene the meeting, which could not take place as the constitution-making authority was dissolved.
The bench also gave 15 days to authorities — the Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers, the Ministry of Law and Justice and the Election Commission — to submit their written response.
The hearing came as advocates Bhoj Raj Acharya, Dhan Bahadur Shrestha and Gyan Prasad Khanal filed a petition seeking order to reinstate the constitution-making body only for a day.
