The hearing on the writ petitions filed against the dissolution of the House of Representatives has been stalled today.

Since Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher JB Rana is not well the constitutional bench to hear the writs could not be formed today.

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.

Immediately after the president dissolved the House and announced the dates for mid-term elections there were various writ petitions filed against the move. However, the hearing on the writs has not been able to move forward because there has been one controversy after another regarding the composition of the constitutional bench.
