Can’t fix poll date, says SC

The Supreme Court said that the court cannot direct the government to hold the elections to the Constituent Assembly (CA) Citing that the provision is maintained under the responsibility and accountability of the state, a single bench of Justice Kalyan Shrestha issued the order.“Holding the elections on a specific date is more a moral question rather than legal one and the state is accountable on it,”the bench said, upholding the decision of the Registrar of the Supreme Court who had refused to register a petition by M S Thapa, chairman of Samabesi Morcha.“The court cannot intervene in such issues because it is not a justiciable issue.”
