KATHMANDU, July 15: Discussion on no-confidence motion filed against the Prime Minister would be held in the meeting of the Legislature-Parliament from July 21.

According to the Parliament Secretariat, the discussion on the no-confidence motion against the government would be held in the next meeting, as three bills related to budget were yet to be passed in the Parliament. The Parliament on Thursday passed the Appropriation Bill-2073.

Different parties including the main opposition party, Nepali Congress, and the CPN (Maoist Centre) had registered the no-confidence motion against the incumbent government at the Parliament.

Although the agenda of today's meeting was to hold discussion on the bill related to the budget, it was postponed after political parties failed to forge consensus in this regard.
The next Parliament meeting would hold discussion on the no-confidence motion registered against Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli by 281 lawmakers including CPN (Maoist Centre) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal, according to the Parliament Secretariat.

Talking to media persons, Speaker Onsari Gharti, said that a conclusion has been drawn not to forward other business in the Parliament except no-confidence motion on the basis of the trend and practice.

The ruling parties are in favour of immediate approval of the bill related to the budget while other parties including the NC and CPN (Maoist Centre) have stood in the line of approving the bill after finalization of the no-confidence motion.

The no-confidence motion registered at the Parliament on Tuesday would take one week to mature. The CPN (Maoist Centre) today decided not to forward the bill related to budget until approval of no-confidence motion whereas the ruling parties including CPN (UML) have decided to brave the no-confidence motion.
