KATHMANDU, Aug 7: A meeting of the House of Representatives (HoR) is currently discussing the impeachment motion earlier registered against Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher JB Rana.

The term of the current House of Representatives (HoR) is soon to expire. However, very little has been done to move the impeachment motion registered against Chief Justice (CJ) Cholendra Shumsher JB Rana.

According to Article 111 (10) of the Constitution of Nepal, even though the session of a House is prorogued while a Bill is under its consideration, deliberations on the Bill may continue at the succeeding session. Provided that if the House of Representatives is dissolved or its term expires when any Bill introduced in the House of Representatives is under its consideration or when any Bill passed by the House of Representatives is under consideration in the National Assembly, such Bill shall lapse. 

Earlier in February, as many as 98 lawmakers of Congress, Maoist Center and CPN (Unified Socialist) registered the motion at the Parliament Secretariat. Following the registration, an Impeachment Recommendation Committee was also formed.
