Nepal Prime Minister recommends dissolution of Parliament

Nepal Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli on Sunday recommended the President Bidya Devi Bhandari to dissolve the Parliament House of Representatives.

K P Sharma Oli belongs to National Communist Party.

This decision came after a prolonged tussle for power between him and former premier Pushpa Kamal Dahal “Prachanda”, also the executive chair of the party.The House of Representatives, elected in 2017, has 275 members.

Prachanda and Madhav Nepal faction has been urging Oli to quit the post of Prime Minister amidst growing accusation and counter-accusation between the two factions in the ruling NCP.

As per the provision of Nepal’s Constitution, there is no provision of dissolving Parliament by the Prime Minister of a majority government.As long as there is a possibility of forming a government from Parliament, there is no provision to dissolve the House.
