Final verdict on House Dissolution likely to deliver on July 12

Supreme Court of Nepal

Supreme Court has scheduled the final verdict on the debate about the constitutionality of Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’s decision to dissolve the House of Representatives on or after July 12, Monday.
Chief Justice Cholendra Shamsher Rana announced that the next session of the hearing would be held on July 12.
In contradiction to many’s assumptions, which was that the verdict would be issued within this week, the five-member constitutional bench has announced the schedule.
Among several writ petitions filed against Oli’s move of dissolving the parliament, the Supreme court has decided to issue a verdict on the one filed by Sher Bahadur Deuba, chief leader of the Nepali Congress.
Court also heard about the issue yesterday (Monday) from four amici curiae sent by the central committee and the Supreme Court chapter of the Nepal Bar Association. Two argued the House should be reinstated, while two others defended Oli’s move as a good action.
The Oli-led government had announced the dissolution of the House on May 22, 2020.
