SC direction on Lokpal selection committee

By IndianMandarins 09 Mar 2019

The Supreme Court bench of Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and Justices S Abdul Nazeer and Sanjiv Khanna has directed Attorney General K K Venugopal to inform it in 10 days when it would be possible to convene a meeting of the Lokpal Selection Committee.

 

The direction came after the AG told the court that the chairperson of the Lokpal Search Committee had informed on February 28 that the committee had forwarded three panels of names to be considered for the appointment of the Chairperson, Judicial Member and Non-Judicial Member.

 

Venugopal said he will ask the Secretary of DoPT to ensure that the meeting of the Selection Committee, headed by the PM, is convened as early as possible.

 

The court was hearing a petition filed by NGO Common Cause seeking contempt charges against the government for non-appointment of Lokpal despite the apex court’s judgment of April 27, 2017.

 

The court had earlier requested the Search Committee to recommend by February end a panel of names for the Lokpal appointment. The Search Committee will forward the names to the Selection Committee, which also includes the Chief Justice of India or his nominee, the Lok Sabha Speaker, the leader of the largest opposition party, and an eminent jurist.
