CJ, judges to discuss HoR declaration

Chief Justice Dilip Kumar Paudel on Sunday said he will hold a discussion with judges of the Supreme Court on the recent declaration of the House of Representatives to find out whether the declaration is part of the constitution and whether it can curtail the apex court's powers or not. Chief Justice Paudel said he would hold a discussion on how to take the declaration and to find out whether it is above the Constitution or not. “Without holding a discussion, I cannot say whether this curtails the Supreme Court’s power on judicial review or not,” Paudel told journalists after a programme on the golden jubilee celebration of the SC.
