The much-talked bill aiming to restore parliament’s authority to impeach Supreme Court judges will be placed at the House on Sunday, a high official of the parliament said today.
Law Minister Anisul Huq will place the bill before the Jatiya Sangsad on September 7 amid criticisms from different groups, the official confirmed The Daily Star.
The cabinet on August 18 approved a proposal for passing the 16th amendment to the Bangladesh constitution to restore parliament's authority to impeach SC judges on grounds of misconduct or incapacity.
Meanwhile, the ruling Awami League parliamentary body has convened an emergency meeting for Sunday night.
Chief Whip ASM Feroz has requested all ruling party lawmakers to attend the meeting at the Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban after the parliamentary session ends.
It is expected that the deputies will discuss the impeachment provision and the latest political issues in the meeting.
