December 20, 2020/Kathmandu-
Government has recommended House dissolution, as against the sentiment of the Constitution.

An emergency Cabinet meeting on Sunday morning decided to recommend the dissolution of the federal parliament.

Prime Minister’s move has not only shocked intellectuals, politicians and others but his Government Ministers too.

Oli had been handling serious Government matters singlehandedly without any consultations with his party leaders and executive chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’.

His move regarding Constitutional Council Act issued on Tuesday after being endorsed by President Bidya Devi Bhandari had sparked widespread opposition.

Most people expected the scraping of the ordinance after an emergency cabinet meeting was called on Sunday morning.

Oli’s sudden activeness in consultation and meetings with his fellow party chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal on Saturday morning, Secretariat member Ram Bahadur Thapa in the afternoon and President Bhandari in the evening had put many into speculation of what was stirring.

Constitution experts have been claiming that the move was against the Constitution.
