KATHMANDU: Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives Shiva Maya Tumbahamphe is likely to resign from her post prior to the winter session of the Federal Parliament.

President Bidya Devi Bhandari has summoned the winter session of the Federal Parliament for December 20.
According to Annapurna daily, Nepal Communist Party (NCP) is exerting pressure on Tumbahamphe to resign from her post.

A Constitutional provision has it that Speaker and Deputy Speaker must represent two different parties and genders. NCP cannot contest elections for the post of Speaker unless Tumbahamphe resigns from her post. Hence, pressures are building on Tumbahamphe to resign.

The session will convene at the New Baneshwor-based parliament building, at 4:00 pm on December 20.
