Kathmandu, 6 January (2021) - The Supreme Court of Nepal has given continuity to the constitutional bench comprising the same five justices led by Chief Justice (CJ) Cholendra Shumsher JB Rana to hear writ petitions against dissolution of House of Representatives.

The CJ could have formed a constitutional bench with other justices since the writs were not deferred due to scarcity of time.

The bench comprises CJ Rana, Justices Hari Krishna Karki, Bishwambhar Prasad Shrestha, Anil Kumar Sinha and Tej Bahadur KC.

The CJ has been criticized for failing to include senior justices in the constitutional bench.

Hearing on the writs against disbanding of parliament has been scheduled on Wednesday with priority.
