The parliament will probably discuss steps to expunge the “unconstitutional, objectionable and irrelevant” observations of the 16th constitutional amendment verdict on Wednesday.
The proposal to discuss on the verict would be given by Moinuddin Khan Badal, lawmaker from Chittagong-8, the business schedule of today’s parliament read.
On July 3, the Supreme Court upheld the annulment of 16th amendment to the constitution that had empowered the parliament to impeach judges for misconduct or incapacity.
In 2014, the government amended the constitution to restore parliament’s authority to impeach judges on grounds of misconduct or incapacity.
The annulment as well as the elaborate observations that strongly criticised the government’s role in running the country, sparked uproar within the ruling fraction.
A series of protests were against the verdict observed and participated by the ruling lawmakers and they demanded to go as far as to call for resignation of Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina strictly criticised the observations in the verdict.
