PM Oli says former chief justices have challenged independence of judiciary
Kathmandu, 10 January (2021) - Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli said that former chief justices have challenged the judiciary.
Addressing the upper parliament National Assembly session on Sunday, PM Oli also suggested people to read the constitution carefully before terming his move unconstitutional.
"There are attempts to pressure the Supreme Court to refrain from taking independent decisions," Oli said. "Some former chief justices think that they can influence the judiciary. They have challenged the independence of judiciary. I wonder what kind of justice they dispensed when they were active in judiciary. They have political bias."
The PM added, "The judiciary shouldn't buckle under pressure. Government and Nepal Communist Party believes in independence of judiciary."
Four former justices had previosuly issued a press release terming PM Oli's move to dissolve the House of Representatives as "unconstitutional".
