SC stays EC’s decision to scrap candidacy of Raju Gururng

KATHMANDU: The Supreme Court (SC) on Sunday issued a short-term order against the Election Commission’s decision to scrap the candidacy of CPN (Unified Socialist) candidate from Rupandehi Constituency-2 Raju Gurung.

Responding to a writ petition filed by Gurung, a single bench of justice Bishwambhar Shrestha ordered the EC not to implement its decision to scrap Gurung’s candidacy.

Gurung had filed a writ petition at the apex court after the poll body scrapped his candidacy for the election to the House of Representatives, arguing that he had been charged with banking fraud.

The court has ordered both sides to appear before court for discussion.
