The Supreme Court of Nepal has issued a show cause notice to the President, Prime Minister and Cabinet. It has been asked on what basis the order for dissolution of Parliament was given on 22 May. The reply to the notice has been sought within 15 days. KP Sharma Oli is the caretaker prime minister in Nepal. There are two factions in Oli’s Nepal Communist Party. Elections are to be held in Nepal on November 12 and 19.
Five-member bench heard
There is no consensus among the political parties regarding the dissolution of parliament and new elections in Nepal. A total of 30 petitions were filed in the Supreme Court on issues related to this case. The hearing of this case was also getting postponed. On Wednesday, a five-member bench headed by Chief Justice Cholendra Shamsher Rana began hearing. Thereafter notices were issued. The court has also taken the help of two senior advocates of the country for the hearing.
political instability looms large
Kovid-19 has not been controlled in Nepal. But, it has no effect on the leaders. The crisis started as soon as Oli became the prime minister. The dissolution of Parliament was also recommended on December 20 last year. After this, the government went on like this and now the election has been announced in November.

New constitution came into force in 2015
In 2006, King Gyanendra allowed the handing over of all power to the exiled representatives. After this, all the parties together formed an interim government. This government had to make the constitution here. During this the interim constitution of Nepal was made. However, people did not accept it after there was controversy on some aspect. After this, a new constitution was implemented in Nepal on 20 September 2015. It was prepared by the Second Constituent Assembly. Earlier Nepal was the only Hindu nation in the world. Presently Nepal is a secular nation. Here everyone is given the freedom to follow any religion at will. It was said in this constitution that everyone should go together.
