SC reinstates House of Representatives
Orders government to summon House session within the next 13 days
KATHMANDU: In what can be billed as landmark verdict, the Supreme Court (SC) reinstated the dissolved House of Representatives (HoR) on Tuesday.
A five-member Constitutional Bench led by Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher Rana annulled the government’s decision to dissolve the HoR.
Likewise, the SC has also ordered the government to summon the House session within the next 13 days.
President Bidya Dev Bhandari had dissolved the House parliament at the recommendation of Prime Minister KP Oli on December 20, 2020.
A total of 13 writ petitions were registered at the SC seeking the reinstatement of the HoR.
