KATHMANDU, Sept 23: Hearing on the writ petitions filed against President Bidya Devi Bhandari for not certifying the citizenship related bills has been deferred until Sunday.
The hearing that was scheduled for Friday at the Supreme Court has been postponed until Sunday as there was no adequate time to conduct the hearing, said Spokeserson at the Supreme Court Bimal Paudel. "The case could not be heard today as there were many other cases to hear."
Justice Dr Manoj Kumar Sharma was scheduled to hear the case. A total of five writ petitions have been filed against President Bhandari for refusing to certify the citizenship bill that both the houses endorsed twice.
The petitioners have demanded President Bhandari to authenticate the bill. The Office of President has been named as a defendant in all the writ petitions.
