Lawyers representing Speaker of the House of Representatives, Agni Prasad Sapkota, have started placing their arguments before the constitutional bench of the Supreme Court, in Kathmandu, on July 4, 2021.

Lawyers representing Speaker of the House of Representatives (HoR), Agni Prasad Sapkota, have started placing their arguments before the constitutional bench of the Supreme Court. The constitutional bench has been continuously hearing the arguments on the writ petitions that have been filed against the dissolution of the House by President Bidhya Devi Bhandari.

Lawyers representing Sapkota have been given two hours to present their arguments.

Advocate Meghraj Pokhrel kicked off the debate before the constitutional bench comprising Chief Justice Cholendra Shumser JB Rana, and justices Deepak Kumar Karki, Meera Khadka, Ishwor Prasad Khatiwada, and Anand Mohan Bhattarai.

Senior advocates Shyam Prasad Kharel, Lab Prasad Mainali, Upendra Keshari Neupane and advocate Shree Krishna Subedi will also plead on behalf of the speaker. Then, writ petitioners will be allotted a time of three hours for their replies and it will be followed by the turn of the amicus curie.

The hearing on the case will end on Monday. A total of 30 writ petitions were registered at the Supreme Court over HoR dissolution, seeking to rescind the president’s move to dissolve the House on the recommendation of the Council of Ministers on May 22 and to announce the snap polls for November 13 and 19, terming the move unconstitutional and illegal.
