A meeting of Parliamentary Hearing Special Committee has endorsed Chief Justice nominee Sushila Karki for the post. The post was vacant for sometime.
Before her name was endorsed, Karki furnished reply against queries from CA members in a meeting held in Singhadarbar on July 10.
Along with the endorsement, the way has been paved to fill the post for chief justice.
The endorsement letter is first sent to constitutional council for approval from where it is taken to President’s office for oath taking ceremony. Karki will be the first female chief justice in the history of Nepal’s judiciary system.
