CPN-UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli has said that his party would not allow the parliament to function unless the impeachment motion against Chief Justice Sushila Karki is withdrawn.Speaking to the media after meeting Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal at Singha Durbar on Thursday, Chairman Oli said the decision of political interference in the judiciary would not be acceptable.“I have given an ultimatum until 3 pm today to the Prime Minister to withdraw the impeachment motion against CJ Karki,” said Oli, “PM Dahal said that he will respond to it before 3pm.”The meeting of the Legislature-Parliament has been scheduled for Thursday.

Likewise, Chairman Oli said that he was astounded by the silence of Nepal Bar Association, among other legal organizations, over the matter that has dealt a blow to the independence of the judiciary.Earlier in the day, speaking at a press meet organised at the party’s headquarters, UML spokesperson Ishwar Pokharel said it was wrong to register such a motion all of sudden just because the government did not get a ruling in its favour.
