Consensus on chief justice leading election govt expected by evening
THT has reported that “Three major parties are planning to request Chief Justice Khil Raj Regmi to resign from his post to assume the proposed post of chief administrator of advisory council or committee or chief executive of the administrative body to be set up to hold the fresh Constituent Assembly elections by May.” If true, this is great news. Because, this move will herald breaking the deadlock, paving path to hold election before the rainy season; if no election could be hold before coming monsoon another window for holding election could require waiting for one full year. However, I hope the CJ will not rush to resign as reported by THT without putting all pieces of the puzzle in place. Because, him hurrying to resign could result in the country losing another head of the constitutional body, the Supreme Court, in the middle of numerous headless constitutional bodies.
