The hearings on the writ petitions filed against the dissolution of the House of Representatives (HoR) at the Supreme Court have concluded today. The verdict on the case will be issued on July 12.

Advocates representing the writ petitioners and those representing the defendant (government) have completed their arguments and the amicus curiae have also placed its opinions before the constitutional bench that was hearing the writ petitions.

Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher JB Rana will be issuing the verdict on July 12. The constitutional bench that was hearing the writ petitions comprised of Chief Justice Rana and Justices Deepak Kumar Karki, Ishwor Prasad Khatiwada, Meera Khadka, and Anand Mohan Bhattarai.

President Bidhya Devi Bhandari, on the recommendation of the 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 Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, who is also chairperson of CPN UML, and Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba 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.
