KP Sharma Oli had dissolved the Parliament on 20 December last year. Many petitions were filed in the Supreme Court against this decision of Oli.
After hearing these petitions, Chief Justice of Supreme Court Justice Cholendra Shamsher Rana gave the decision and termed the dissolution of Parliament as unconstitutional. The court has ordered PM Oli to call a session of the House of Representatives within 13 days.
Since the dissolution of Parliament, all eyes were on the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court’s decision is a setback for PM Oli. Now they have to prove their majority in Parliament and they do not have a majority yet. If they are not able to prove much, they will have to resign.
The Nepal Communist Party is divided into the Oli vs Prachanda camp and the party MPs are also divided. In such a situation, Oli can remain in the post of PM only when he will be able to prove a lot in Parliament.
