Supplementary petition lodged against constitutional appointments
KATHMANDU, July 20: A supplementary petition has been lodged at the Supreme Court (SC) challenging the appointments made in the constitutional bodies at the recommendation of the Constitutional Council issuing ordinance by the KP Oli administration.
Advocate Om Prakash Aryal registered the supplementary petition on Monday naming the Office of the President, Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers and others as the defendants seeking to remove those appointed through the ordinances in different dates.
