    Post Report, Oct 23 2016

    Theoretical discussion on the impeachment motion against Lokman Singh Karki, suspended chief of the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority, is likely to start in Parliament from Monday.

    A House meeting called for Sunday will fix the date and time for the discussion. The impeachment motion against Karki was moved by 157 lawmakers from the CPN-UML and CPN (Maoist Centre) on Wednesday evening.

    According to Babin Sharma, press adviser to Speaker Onasari Gharti, a meeting of the chief whips of parties before the House meeting on Sunday will take a decision regarding the date and time for theoretical discussion on the motion. Sunday’s House meeting has been scheduled for 11am. “Discussion is likely to start on Monday,” said Bhanubhakta Dhakal, chief whip of the UML. Dhakal had seconded the impeachment motion against Karki that was proposed by Maoist lawmaker Mahendra Bahadur Shahi. A rough calculation based on the existing rules shows  that it will take at least six weeks for the completion of the impeachment process.  (PR)

    The High Court on Friday cleared All Nepal Football Association (Anfa) to go ahead of with its scheduled election that will elect president and vice-president on October 24.

    The court had on September 30 issued a stay order to halt the election procedure responding to a writ petition filed by referee committee’s Binod KC and the football governing body’s former general secretary Lok Bahadur Shahi. The duo had filed the writ claiming that the impending election was illegitimate. The court had summoned five defendants, including Sports Minister Daljit Shripali, National Sports Council Member Secretary Keshav Bista and Anfa, on  Oct 21.

    Acting Anfa president Narendra Shrestha and vice-president Karma Tshiring Sherpa are fighting for the top post in the football governing body. The regional football governing body— the Asian Football Confederation—had directed Anfa to hold elections for new president after Fifa slapped a 10-year ban on disgraced former president Ganesh Thapa for bribery and corruption.

    The Anfa general assembly will also elect a new vice-president to fill the vacancy left after the demise of Lalit Krishna Shrestha, who had died over a year ago. Former national team goalkeeper/skipper Upendra Man Singh, ex-central committee member Dipak Khati and Mani Kunwar are running for vice-president post.

    The second iteration of Photo Kathmandu opened in Patan Museum, Patan Durbar Square on Friday, amid a crowd of artists, storytellers, the Valley’s denizens and photo enthusiasts from around the world. Now, the festival’s 12 print exhibition venues—all located around Patan’s core, and Bungamati—are open for public viewing.
