KATHMANDU, July 12: Senior leader of CPN-UML Madhav Kumar Nepal has welcomed the verdict of Supreme Court to reinstate the dissolved parliament.
In his reaction after the apex court’s verdict on the house dissolution case, senior leader Nepal said that the verdict had helped to safeguard the country’s political system. “The Supreme Court has done a commendable job. This has saved the [political] system we have now. Since the court has directly asked to appoint Deuba as new prime minister, we have no role to play now,” he said.
Senior leader Nepal also said that parliament will now take all the decisions. “Parliament has been reinstated. We will now go to parliament. All the decisions will be taken from parliament now,” he said. “The court’s verdict has also raised moral questions on Oli’s actions.”
In a separate context, senior leader Nepal also said that he will not take part in the UML’s Standing Committee meeting called by Oli today. He said that he will not participate in the meeting as this was called without holding consultation and seeking his consent.
