The meeting of Constitutional Council held Monday to recommend the name of chief justice (CJ) has ended inconclusively after the main opposition CPN-UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli, who is also the Council's member, asked for time to study about acting CJ Gopal Parajuli.
Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba, during the meeting held at Singha Durbar Monday morning, submitted the letter that was sent by the Judicial Council, with a proposal of recommending Parajuli as the CJ.
Earlier, the Judicial Council on June 13 had recommended the names of six Justices including Acting Chief Justice Gopal Parajuli for the post of Chief Justice, and justices as Dipak Raj Joshi, Om Prakash Mishra, Devendra Gopal Shrestha, Cholendra Shumsher JB Rana and Jagdish Sharma Poudel to the Constitutional Council.
In order to pave the way for Acting CJ Prarajuli to become Chief Justice, the Judicial Council meeting had also decided to establish his date of birth as April 28, 1993 on the basis of the verdict of Supreme Court in this regard and report it to the Constitutional Council.
"The basic discussions were held in the meeting," an office-bearer, who was present in the meeting, told Setopati, "Office-bearers have suggested to recommend the name list of chief justice after conducting the June 28 local elections. So the recommendation of chief justice could not be held today."
The next meeting of Council will be held after June 28, according to him.

The Doklam dilemma
Being a buffer state between the two giant neighbors, Nepal should conduct its foreign policy vis-à-vis China and India in a very sensitive manner. Nepal has always maintained that it would not allow its soil to be used against any neighbor. At the same time, Nepal should make sure that its own national interests are never compromised.

To dogs, with love
Many find talking about basic animal rights stupid when no basic rights of people are guaranteed. However, there are still few people who are aware how humane behavior has turned toward cruelty and indifference which can be vividly seen through the way street dogs and other animals are abused around us.
