Chairperson of major opposition party CPN UML, KP Sharma Oli, expressed his disagreement with the withdrawal of the ordinance related to the political parties while the parliament session was ongoing.
Chairperson Oli took serious exception to an annulment of the ordinance in the meeting with the Minister for Law, Justice, and Parliamentary Affairs Gyanendra Bahadur Karki at his personal residence at Balkot, Bhaktapur today.
The incumbent government on August 18 had issued an ordinance that allowed any group within a party with 20 per cent members of the central committee and the parliamentary party could split the party and form the new one.
Last Monday, the cabinet meeting had decided to revoke the ordinance in the consensus of ruling coalition partners.
According to Oli’s secretariat, during the meeting with Minister Karki, former Prime Minister Oli argued the revocation of the ordinance was unconstitutional.
