KATHMANDU, Dec 6: The Supreme Court on Tuesday summoned the Election Commission and the District Election Office Sarlahi to attend the apex court for hearing on Wednesday to discuss the EC's cancellation of candidacy of Shivapujan Ray Yadav from Constituency No 4, Sarlahi District.   

Challenging the EC's decision to cancel his nomination, Yadav had moved the Supreme Court on November 12 seeking its intervention.

The EC had canceled Yadav's candidacy saying that a passport forgery case against Yadav is pending at the Special Court.
Yadav in his petition filed at the Supreme Court has made the EC, the District Election Office Sarlahi and Nepali Congress parliamentary candidate from Sarlahi constituency 4 Ganesh Prasad Singh as defendants.
