The government has published the gazette clarifying the service rules for lower court judges.
The law ministry issued the gazette notification on Monday afternoon keeping the president’s authority to control the lower court judges.
Earlier, on Sunday, the Supreme Court extended time for the government up to December 13 to issue a gazette notification on lower court judges' conduct rules.
A five-member Appellate Division bench, led by acting Chief Justice Abdul Wahhab Miah, passed the order following a time-petition filed by Attorney General Mahbubey Alam.
On November 30, Law Minister Anisul Huq said his ministry had sent the draft of the gazette to the Prime Minister's office. Once the PM gives consent to the draft, it will be sent to President's office, said the minister.
After the President's approval, the Law Ministry will issue the much-awaited gazette notification, he added.
On November 16, Anisul Huq, after a meeting with acting Chief Justice Abdul Wahhab Miah, said the gazette notification would be issued before December 3 if the President permits.
On November 5, the apex court extended time for the government up to December 3 to publish the gazette notification.
