Acting Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has given a big blow to the Prime Minister in Nepal. The court quashed Ollie’s decision in which he announced dissolution of the House of Representatives of Parliament on 20 December. The court has directed the House of Representatives to be reinstated. Also, ordered a session of the house of 275 MPs within 13 days. Now Ollie must prove his majority in Parliament. It is difficult for him to do so, as most of the party’s MPs are against Oli.
Separate 13 petitions were filed in the Nepali Supreme Court against the decision to dissolve Parliament. A constitutional bench of 5 judges of the Supreme Court was hearing this. A 5-member constitutional bench headed by Cholendra Shamsher Rana ruled on Monday. During a debate in the Supreme Court last Friday, 5 lawyers appearing for the amicus curiae had said that Prime Minister Oli’s decision to dissolve the House was unconstitutional.
