SC denies registering writ against poll suspension
The Supreme Court on Wednesday has rejected registering a writ petition brought up by a group called Inclusive Front demanding an order to the government and the Seven Party Alliance against their decision to suspend the Constituent Assembly elections on November 22.
The group led by MS Thapa claimed that decision was against the spirit of the constitutional provisions which stated that the constituent assembly elections would be held within mid-December and that suspension of the polls was against the constitution.
The petitioner further said a clause in the Responsibilities, Directive Principles and Policies of the State of the interim constitution has provision for holding the polls within Mangsir, so the decision to suspend was unconstitutional.
The apex court said the provision is under the principle of state responsibility and it is not a justifiable matter
