Speaker at the House of Representatives Agni Prasad Sapkota has sent back the recommendations of officials at the constitutional bodies made by the Constitutional Council (CC) for parliamentary hearing.
The CC had announced that all vacancies in constitutional bodies were filled before the House dissolution by Prime Minister KP Oli dissolved the House of Representatives on December 20.
The council meeting held on December 15, 2020, had nominated various persons for 45 vacant positions at constitutional bodies.
Speaker Sapkota sent back the recommendations arguing that the hearing cannot be conducted as the House has been dissolved.
The CC had then recommended Prem Kumar Rai as the Chief of the Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA).
Likewise, the former Nepal Police AIG Kishor Kumar Silwal and Jaya Kumar Chand were recommended as CIAA Commissioners.
