Speaker: Ruling infringed upon House’s turf
May 8, 2017-
Speaker Onasari Gharti has accused the judiciary of infringing upon the jurisdiction of Parliament by issuing an interim order to stay the impeachment motion filed against Chief Justice Sushila Karki.
Talking briefly to media persons before leaving the Legislature-Parliament on Sunday after deferring the House meeting till May 18, Gharti said every state organ should stick to their bounds.
“The constitution has clearly stated the role of each state organ,” said the Speaker. “I believe that everyone should comply with the constitutional jurisdiction.”
Gharti added that the tussle between the top state bodies would hamper efforts to institutionalise democracy and the scheduled elections.
“Everyone should introspect and work towards resolving the issue with patience and tolerance,” said Gharti, adding that
she had postponed the House meeting in order to seek a solution through
dialogue as “the nation is at a critical juncture”.
