President Bidhya Devi Bhandari has called for a session of both the House of Representatives and the National Assembly at 4 pm on Sunday (July 18) on the recommendation of the Council of Ministers.

President Bidhya Devi Bhandari has called for a session of both the House of Representatives (HoR) and the National Assembly. The president has called for the sessions to be conducted at 4 pm on Sunday (July 18) on the recommendation of the Council of Ministers.

A meeting of the Council of Ministers that was held on Thursday had decided to recommend the aforementioned date for the session of the HoR and National Assembly to President Bhandari.

President Bhandari, on the recommendation of the then government, had dissolved the House of Representatives and announced the dates for mid-term elections on May 22. She had cited that the claims made by former Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, who is also chairperson of CPN UML, and Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba, who has now been appointed prime minister, to form the government as per Article 76 (5) of the Constitution of Nepal did not hold sufficient ground to confirm that they would win the vote of confidence in the Parliament.

However, the constitutional bench of the Supreme Court that had been hearing the writ petitions filed against the dissolution of the House of Representatives had issued a verdict on July 12 to reinstate the House and appoint Deuba as prime minister.

The Supreme Court had also issued an order for the reinstated House of Representatives to hold its session by July 18.
