Hearing on Koshi Government Formation Dispute to Continue Today

The Supreme Court Continues Hearing on Writ Petition Against Koshi Province Chief Minister’s ‘Vote of Confidence’.

The Supreme Court is set to continue its hearing on the writ petition filed against the ‘vote of confidence’ obtained by Chief Minister Uddhav Thapa of Koshi Province today. This follows the previous hearing on Monday, which could not be completed due to time constraints.

The Monday hearing was presided over by a division bench consisting of Justices Sapana Malla Pradhan, Kumar Chudal, and Nahakul Subedi.

The petitioner, Hikmat Kumar Karki, who is the Parliamentary Party leader of CPN-UML in Koshi Province, named Koshi Province Chief Parshuram Khapung and Chief Minister Thapa, among others, as defendants in the case.

On August 24, Supreme Court Justice Ishwor Prasad Khatiwada issued an interim order directing the province government not to make any long-term decisions, citing concerns about the constitutionality of Chief Minister Thapa’s approach to securing the vote of confidence.

Chief Minister Thapa obtained the confidence motion on August 21, prompting the filing of the writ petition, which argues that the process of securing the vote of confidence was unconstitutional.
