Kathmandu—Amid protest from main opposition CPN-UML including other fringe parties, the impeachment motion against Chief Justice Sushila Karki which had registered in Parliament Secretariat has been tabled in legislative parliament today.
Speaker Onsari Gharti informed that the hearing time and special time have lifted from today’s schedule as CPN-UML lawmakers protested and started the chanting of slogans against the impeachment motion and its tabling.
At the same time, UML lawmakers came to picket the rostrum but speaker Gharti informed about the discussion time over the impeachment motion for 1 pm today, turning a blinding eye to the protest by the opposition.
CPN-UML had demanded that the issue of motion should be finalized before the automatic retirement of CJ Karki. However that kind of agreement couldn’t be made in a meeting of UML, ruling NC and CPN-MC’s top leaders.
249 lawmakers from ruling NC and CPN-MC had registered the impeachment motion against CJ Karki on last Sunday.
