Judicial Service Commission’s meeting deferredThe meeting was called by the chief justice. Public Service Commission chair’s unavailability led to deferral.
The meeting of the Judicial Service Commission called by Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher Rana for Wednesday afternoon has been deferred indefinitely.
The meeting called to decide the results of the exams conducted for district judges on September 28 couldn’t be held as Chairperson of the Public Service Commission Madhav Prasad Regmi, also a member of the Judicial Service Commission, was out of the Valley.
“The meeting of the Judicial Service Commission called for 3pm on Wednesday has been cancelled as Regmi was out of the Valley,” reads a statement issued by Man Bahadur Karki, spokesperson for the Secretariat of the Judicial Council.
Led by the chief justice, the law minister, senior-most justice of the Supreme Court, chairperson of the Public Service Commission and the attorney general are the members of the Judicial Service Commission. After remaining silent for around two months following revolt of the justices and law professionals against him, Rana on Tuesday called the meeting of the Judicial Service Commission for Wednesday.
Though the meeting was deferred citing the chairperson of the Public Service Commission’s inability to attend it, it wasn’t certain if other members would have participated.
Talking to the Post on Tuesday, Attorney General Khamma Bahadur Khati said the members of the commission would first hold an informal meeting before taking a collective decision on whether to attend Wednesday’s meeting.
