Nepal’s Supreme Court has overturned Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’s decision through which he dissolved the Parliament. The court has ordered Oli to call a session of Parliament within 13 days. On 20 December, PM Oli recommended dissolution of Parliament, which was also approved by President Vidya Devi Bhandari. However, many petitions were filed against this decision in the court. After their hearing, this decision of the Supreme Court has come on Tuesday.
After the dissolution of Parliament, PM Oli has also canceled all appointments made in constitutional institutions. Oli made around four dozen such appointments. After this decision of Nepal’s Supreme Court, the attack on PM Oli has intensified. After the verdict, Prachanda camp has said that Oli has no moral right to remain in the post of PM. Significantly, after the dissolution of Parliament, new elections were also announced. New elections were to be held in Nepal on 30 April and 10 May but after the Supreme Court’s decision, the old Parliament has been restored.
