2022 Feb 23, 7:50, Kathmandu
The Supreme Court has reinstated the House of Representatives.

The Supreme Court (SC) has rejected to issue an interim order in a petition filed demanding to put off the local level election slated for May 13. With this, ways have been paved for the Election Commission (EC) of Nepal to run election related activities targeting the local level polls.

A single bench of Justice Bishwambhar Prasad Shrestha issued a show cause notice letting the EC to carry out its schedules for the local level election.

Mayor of Bhangaha Municipality in Mahottari district Sanjib Kumar Shah had filed a writ petition demanding to scrap the announcement of the local level poll stating that the date for the poll was six months prior to their term and was thus unconstitutional.
