The Supreme Court (SC) has refused to issue an interim order in the writ petition demanding removal of constitutional obstacles for verification of bills by the president in absence of speaker.
Advocate Uttam Bahadur Shrestha on Thursday had moved the SC demanding the interim order pointing that verification of five bills has been delayed in lack of speaker following resignation of Krishna Bahadur Mahara.
The writ had named the Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers, and the Ministry of Law, Justice and Federal Affairs as defendants.
The bench of Justice Tanka Bahadur Moktan hearing the petition on Sunday has refused to issue the interim order demanded by the petitioner. The SC, however, has sought written response from the defendants asking why the petitioner's demand should not be fulfilled.
The petition lists the bills related to Nepal Police and Provincial Police, police integration, national identity card and record, land and industrial enterprise that have not been verified by the president despite being passed by both the federal Houses and demanded order for verification of the bills by the president through removal of constitutional obstacles.
