KATHMANDU, Feb 23: Supporters of Pushpa Kamal Dahal-Madhav Nepal faction of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) and other people have begun celebrations following the verdict of the Supreme Court (SC) to reinstate the House of Representatives (HoR) earlier today.
A five-member Constitutional Bench led by Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher JBR on Tuesday annulled the government’s decision to dissolve the 275-member lower house of parliament.
The Supreme Court also ordered the government to summon the House session within the next 13 days.
