Kathmandu, July 3
A lawmaker of the ruling Nepal Communist Party has commented that the Supreme Court’s refusal to issue a stay order against the call for applications for over 9,000 positions at the local level is regressive.
Pambha Bhusal’s comment signals that the party is divided over the the recruitment process that the Public Service Commission is moving forward.
Earlier this week, the apex court had refused to issue the interim order in response to a writ filed against the recruitment which had argued the process did not follow reservation quotas as suggested in the law.
But, speaking at a meeting of State Affairs and Good Governance Committee in Parliament today, Bhusal said the court’s refusal was an extreme example of regression.
“There is no one as regressive as the court,” she said, “It moved against the principles of inclusion.”
Earlier last month, the committee had directed the government and the Commission to cancel the recruitment process. While the Commission continued collecting applications, the court also did not stop the constitutional body.
