Writ petitions that reached Supreme Court not registered today
KATHMANDU: The opposition alliance could not register a writ in the Supreme Court seeking an order to declare Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba as the Prime Minister today as its preparations to file the petition were not enough.
As the writs are not taken by the Supreme Court after 3 PM, the possibility of registration today has been ruled out. Even though it was said to inform the MPs of their respective parties, the signing could not take place as not all the MPs of UML’s Madhav Nepal faction were present.
Madhav Nepal faction MP Som Prasad Pandey said that the discussion was delayed today as top leaders were holding discussions with legal practitioners.
Although about two dozen writ petitions have been filed in the Supreme Court against the dissolution of the House of Representatives and the announcement of the election, the Supreme Court Administration has stated that none have been registered today.
