KATHMANDU, Dec 21: Dissident lawmakers of the dissolved House of Representatives (HoR) who are associated with the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) have reached the Supreme Court demanding the immediate restoration of the HoR.

Lawmakers close to the party’s Executive Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal and senior leader Madhav Kumar Nepal including Krishna Bhakta Pokhrel decided to knock at the top court’s door, arguing that Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’s move to dissolve parliament was an unconstitutional and undemocratic move.

After President Bidya Devi Bhandari dissolved the HoR on Sunday at the recommendation of Prime Minister Oli, the Dahal-Oli faction presented their strong differences. Sources close to the faction shared that they would formulate alternative strategies to restore the dissolved parliament.
