Supreme Court overturns HoR's suspension of lawmaker Tek Bahadur Gurung

KATHMANDU: In a significant ruling, the Supreme Court has overturned the suspension of House of Representatives (HoR) member Tek Bahadur Gurung, who is a leader of the Nepali Congress party.

A division bench consisting of Manoj Kumar Sharma and Binod Sharma made the decision to revoke Gurung's suspension.

Gurung, who represents Manang in the Lower House, was suspended from his post by the Federal Parliament Secretariat, with the suspension set to take effect from December 23, 2022, on allegations of corruption.

Subsequently, Gurung approached the apex court to challenge the decision to suspend him from his position.

The Supreme Court, through a writ of certiorari, has annulled the suspension along with all official documents pertaining to it.

This ruling marks a significant development in Gurung's case and reinstates him to his position in the House of Representatives.
