All election process postponed: Election Commission

Following the Supreme Court’s decision, the Election Commission said that all election processes have been postponed

The Election Commission (EC) has said that all election-related programs have been postponed following the Supreme Court’s decision to reconstitute the parliament.

Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli had dissolved the parliament on Jeshtha 8 and announced elections on Kartik 26 and Mangsir 3. The Supreme Court on Monday issued an order to make Sher Bahadur Deuba the Prime Minister. Dismissing the issue of dissolution of the House of Representatives, the Supreme Court has issued an order to make Deuba the Prime Minister.

The Constitutional Court, including Chief Justice Cholendra Shamsher Jabra, has also ordered Nepali Congress President Deuba to be made the Prime Minister and the House of Representatives to be reconstituted.

President Bidhyadevi Bhandari had dissolved the House of Representatives for the second time on the recommendation of Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli at midnight on Jeshtha 7. Similarly, the Supreme Court overturned the decision to dissolve the House of Representatives and ordered to convene a session immediately.

The Constitutional Session of the Supreme Court has given permission to convene a meeting of the House of Representatives by 5 pm on Shrawan 3. The Supreme Court has also ruled that the party cannot whip party MPs as per Article 76, Clause 5 of the Constitution.
