The hearing on the writ petition filed against the appointment of Kulman Ghising as the executive director of Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) is being held today in the Supreme Court.
Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher Rana will be hearing the case.
Former executive director Hitendra Dev Shakya had filed a writ petition in the SC on August 16 against the Office of Prime Minister and Council of Ministers, Ministry of Energy, Board of Directors of NEA, and Ghising, demanding to void Ghising’s appointment.
In his petition, Shakya has claimed that he was removed from the position unlawfully and has demanded re-appointment.
