Nepal Election 2017: A political Game for stakeholders

The Nepal Election 2017 has successfully completed first phase of its ordeal, highlighting the uncertainty and chaos.  Once again creating a situation of  political deadlock the  Supreme court has intervened in the political truce of interrupting the Madhesi union aspiration, Nepal is again back in the path of Political unrest. The truce has been broken where the Madeshi Union (MU) has announced protest program and has given ultimatum to Nepal government to adopt the new constitution amendments bill or else to face the consequences.

The MU has openly challenged the government of foiling the second phase of election that is schedule to happen from June 14 on Madeshi territory.

The election was merely a chapter of democracy and practice of democratic values where all the stakeholders are bargaining  their powers and commitment.

People voted but they have been framed in the political aspiration of creating better system where more or less the Nepal election proves to be a successful political gimmick. People want to practice their democratic rights and they are farmed in the name of political deprivation.

From the elite political parties, it was just an intervention of identifying their role and perspective of creating better alliance for the formation of new government where they can manipulate the position. Various aspect of tokenization of Women was also seen in terms of lobby young and inexperience candidates in various positions by political parties as a trending option of political bubble.

The European union and developing organization (INGOs ) were more focused in securing the rights of indigenous/ minority group with substantially pushing the role of representative in the local level election as a compulsion.

The MU is more focused in creating issues and agendas of being deprived and unwanted collecting sympathies from the international communities.

The Nepal Election is hugely subjected to a dilemma of collaboration between the MU and the elite political parties. The trust has been broken with the new interim order of the supreme court on Friday which clearly states a new polarity of 3 angles

1. Madeshi union
2. The Government of Nepal
3. The Supreme Court of Nepal

It seems the political culture and political leadership of Nepal  has no sense of  commitment towards the public or democratic values. It is all about the power and  manipulation where alliance and agreements are formed just for making or running the government. Public governance and cooperation is a limitation of  system that is more neutral about practicing values of Nepotism, corruption and favoritism.

Sushila Karki Vs Lokman & in between people are suffering the consequences

It seems like a joke when you hear the Lokman Singh Karki's case. It is completely insane and  extending like a chewing Gum where now Sushila Karki the chief justice is playing her cards.
As you can see the headlines that the Supreme Court on Tuesday recommended action, including imprisonment for 15 days and Rs 1,000 fine, against one of its junior officials on charge of dereliction of duty and two employees of the Kathmandu Metropolitan City Ward No 10.

I do not understand why the public servants are being targeted, its a open war in between Lokman and Sushila Karki why are they fighting their battle with the help of power and position.

Just to prove the facts:
The SC decided to review his appointment as the CIAA chief, the notice asked Karki to be present before the SC himself or send a representative along with whatever evidences he has within 15 days of its delivery. Karki, who was appointed as the chief of the anti-graft constitution body for six years in May 2013 amid big controversy, will now have to be present himself before the apex court or send his representative within 15 days.

 "Advocate Om Prakash Aryal had filed a writ petition challenging Karki’s appointment.  A division bench, however, on September 24, 2014 quashed Aryal’s petition that sought revocation of Karki’s appointment."

Recently responding to a latest writ, a division bench of Chief Justice Sushila Karki, Justice Bishwambhar Prasad Shrestha and Justice Sapana Pradhan Malla, on September 16 observed that there was fault in the two year-old order.

The Justice trio said the case over Karki’s appointment would be reviewed as it raised a question on constitutional provision about high moral character sought for the constitutional position and whether Karki, who served in the Palace for six years, two months and 10 days, was eligible for the position.

The Justices observed that considering Karki’s service in the palace for the 20-year service criteria fixed by the Interim Constitution for the appointment in the CIAA was against the Principle of Constitution Construction.

Aryal has asked the SC to see if Karki, who was accused of corruption and held responsible for suppression during the People’s Movement II during the royal regime, was eligible to be the CIAA chief.

It's completely illogical how the chief justice is taking it back on Lokman. Lokman in the past has been furious aginst  Public figure Kanak Mani Dixit who was accused of holding foreign bank accounts, share holdings in international banks and occupied illegal government property by the CIAA.

After the arrest of Kanak Mani Dixit, Lokman took some outside measure where Sushila Karki was not comfortable. The revelation of Sushila Karki being relative of Kanak Mani Dixit wife further lands her in moral position but she has been smart enough not to acknowledge that and not obeying her orders certainly seems like her ego is hurt. The tussle in between the power and position has certainly created a situation where reality cannot be ignored that there are thousands of cases that are pending and still waiting for the hearing where a case of no value is getting so much of importance.

This case certainly highlights the credibility of Nepal judiciary system and how much it is politically motivated. I am not supporting Lokman but I am in favor of taking out personal grudges at this level.
She certainly proves to be a weak leadership.
It is really sad how the Supreme court is challenging its own system and creating problems. It is not only hampering its own image but due to weakness of such leadership it is staining the image of the whole judiciary system.
