Nepal’s Chief Justice-cum-Executive-Chief Khil Raj Regmi Saturday summoned the inaugural session of the Constituent Assembly on January 22 as President Ram Baran Yadav ultimately backed out.
President Yadav and Regmi had been at loggerheads over the issue with both claiming their constitutional right to summon the House. Regmi ultimately prevailed asserting that the interim constitution has clearly assigned such a responsibility to the Prime Minister.
As the battle intensified, both had agreed that they will abide by the decision of the Supreme Court where the issue is pending. But Regmi summoned the House much before the case was settled. Regmi, who is the head of the government as well as the judiciary at the moment, has also managed to bring the legislature under his command for the time being and his absolute authority will remain in place until a new government is duly formed.
