Writ petition filed against appointment of Sudurpaschim Chief Minister quashed


Kathmandu, May 16: The Supreme Court has scrapped the writ petition filed against appointment of Dirgha Sodari as Chief Minister of Sudurpaschim Province.     

A full bench of Justices Prakash Kumar Dhungana, Kumar Chudal and Sunil Kumar Pokhrel issued the directive order, scrapping the writ petition.     

Province Assembly member of Nagarik Unmukti Party, Laxman Kishor Chaudhary, had filed a writ petition against the appointment of Chief Minister Sodari on April 21.     

Sodari is the parliamentary party leader of CPN (Unified Socialist).     

He filed the writ petition after Province Chief Najir Minya scrapped both candidates'- Laxman Kishor and Kailash Chaudury- claim for Chief Minister following the resignation of then Chief Minister Kamal Bahadur Shahi.     

Province Chief Minya later appointed Sodari as Chief Minister, which prompted Laxman Kishor to file the writ petition. (RSS)
