Nepal President Bidya Devi ratifies proposal to dissolve Parliament

New Delhi: Nepal President Bidya Devi Bhandari ratifies the proposal of the Cabinet to dissolve the Parliament, reports ANI.

Upon the recommendation of the council of ministers, Nepal President Bidya Devi Bhandari announces that national polls will be held between April 30 and May 10 next year, says the President’s office.

Oli was under pressure to withdraw an ordinance related to the Constitutional Council Act that he had issued on Tuesday and got endorsed by President Bidya Devi Bhandari the same day.

The Nepal PM has been facing pressure from the rival factions of the NCP led by former prime ministers Pushpa Kamal Dahal and Madhav Nepal.

Earlier today, Prachanda reached PM residence to get first-hand knowledge on the issue. However, PM remained reserved and didn’t say anything except that “he will take a firm action today”.

Prime Minister Oli convened the cabinet meeting at 9:45 AM and made the decision in less than an hour.
