Kathmandu: A writ petition has been filed at the Supreme Court (SC) on Monday demanding to conduct a hearing on a case filed against Constitutional Council Ordinance.

Advocate Om Prakash Aryal moved the apex court after hearing on the case was postponed following an interim order not to hear the dispute related to the Ordinance on Constitutional Council.

The SC had issued an interim order not to hear the dispute over the ordinance in the Constitutional Bench till the final settlement of the writ petition.

The order states that a written reply should be submitted within 15 days, including the reasons for the Chief Justice recusing himself from the Constitutional Bench, and to have the case registered on the third day after receiving the written reply as it is a matter of national importance.

The order issued by a single bench of Justice Hari Prasad Phuyal has further delayed a hearing on the ordinance.
