Since all the procedures related to the House dissolution case have been completed the constitutional bench of the Supreme Court could likely issue a verdict today.

The constitutional bench of the Supreme Court that had been hearing the writ petitions filed against the dissolution of the House of Representatives (HoR) by President Bidhya Devi Bhandari will be holding discussions today.

The constitutional bench which is headed by Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher JB Rana and comprises of Justices Deepak Kumar Karki, Ishwor Prasad Khatiwada, Meera Khadka, and Anand Mohan Bhattarai, has already heard arguments from lawyers representing both the petitioners and defendants and also the amicus curiae.

Since all the legalities related to the case have been completed the constitutional bench could likely issue a verdict today.

President 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.
