Elections from April to May in Nepal

Nepalese Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli on Sunday recommended the dissolution of parliament, which was officially approved by President Vidya Devi Bhandari. At the same time, the President announced the dates for the mid-term elections. The polls will now take place for the first phase on April 30th and the second phase on May 10th.

In the emergency meeting of the Oli cabinet on Sunday morning, it was decided to recommend that the President dissolve the Bundestag. Oli then reached out to President Vidya Devi Bhandari with this recommendation.

Barshaman Pun, who was the energy minister in the Oli cabinet, said: “It was decided to send a recommendation to dissolve Parliament at today’s emergency cabinet meeting.” He said that many members of the ruling government had sharply criticized the prime minister’s move.

Indeed, Prime Minister Oli has been under considerable political pressure to withdraw an ordinance on the Constitutional Council Act passed Tuesday. This was also approved by President Vidya Devi Bhandari. At the same time as Prime Minister Oli convened the emergency cabinet meeting at 10 a.m. on Sunday, there was speculation that an amendment to the ordinance should be recommended, but the Oli government surprised everyone with the decision to dissolve parliament. Let us know that there are two houses in Nepal, the House of Representatives and the National Assembly. A majority in the House of Representatives is required to form a government.
