Parliament passes CA Polls Court bill
The Interim Legislature-Parliament on Friday passed the Constituent Assembly Elections Court Bill 2064.
This was the last bill pending for ratification by parliament for the Constituent Assembly polls.
The Constituent Assembly Elections Bill has a provision to establish a court that will look into contentious issues and investigate them during the polls.
The court will be headed by a Supreme Court justice with two members to be nominated by the Judicial Council.
The court will also have the authority to invalidate the polls if any irregularities are found during the elections.
No one would be able to move any court once the Constituent Assembly Court gives its verdict in a case.
Earlier, a meeting of the Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Committee had passed the Constituent Assembly Polls Bill and tabled it at parliament.
