Kathmandu June 17 : Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has submitted 18-point written response regarding the issue of dissolution of House of Representatives to the Supreme Court through the Office of the Attorney General. The written response submitted today argued that the HoR was dissolved constitutionally as per the order of the Supreme Court.
“An order has been issued stating that there is a constitutional provision to dissolve the House of Representatives as per the Article 76 (7) of the Constitution if there was no option of appointing another member of the House of Representatives as the Prime Minister or the appointed Prime Minister could not get the vote of confidence,” reads the written response. The response mentioned that the HoR was dissolved after the failure to form an alternative government by using all options of Article 76 as mentioned in the Supreme Court order and the dissolution of the HoR was natural and constitutional.
Prime Minister Oli submitted the written response after the constitutional bench of the Supreme Court had on June 9 issued an order in the name of the government to submit within a week written response regarding HoR dissolution.
