Impeachment motion filed against CJ Rana
KATHMANDU: An impeachment motion has been filed against Chief Justice Cholendra Shamsher JB Rana at the Parliament Secretariat on Sunday.
Ruling Nepali Congress, CPN (Maoist Centre) and CPN (Unified Socialist) filed the motion this afternoon.
Maoist Centre Chief Whip Dev Gurung said that the motion was filed as per Article 101 (2) of the Constitution.
There is a provision to suspend Chief Justice as soon as the impeachment motion is registered. However, it needs a two-thirds majority of the parliament to endorse it.
The lawyers of the Nepal Bar Association (NBA), the umbrella body of lawyers across the country, had resumed their protest against CJ Rana from today.
