KATHMANDU, July 15: In line with Monday’s Supreme Court’s mandamus, the government on Thursday recommended to President Bidya Devi Bhandari to call a new session of parliament on July 18.
According to Gyanendra Bahadur Karki, goverenment spokesperson, the fresh sessions of the two houses of parliament --- the House of Representatives and the National Assembly --- have been scheduled for 4PM Sunday, next week.
The Supreme Court issued an order in the name of the government to call a new House sesion by July 18 when it passed its verdict on the House dissolution case. This would be the first meeting of the 275-member lower House of parliament after it was unconstitutionally dissolved on May 22.
President Bhandari prorogued the ongoing session of the upper House --- NA--- on Monday on the recommendation of the outgoing KP Oli-led government.
