KATHMANDU: Lawyers taking part in the pleading on behalf of the government in regard to the writ petitions against the dissolution of the House of Representatives (HoR) have concluded the debate Friday.

The pleading on the case by the government side had commenced with Attorney General Ramesh Badal putting his statement on the matter Monday and the party was given 15 hours to put the views.

The public prosecutor and the prime minister’s lawyer debated for seven hours. Now, the turn goes to the Speaker’s lawyer who has been given one hour. There will be a debate on behalf of the Speaker on Sunday.

The hearing on the writ petition is taking place before the Constitutional Bench that comprises Chief Justice Cholendra Shamsher Jabra and Judges Deepak Kumar Karki, Mira Khadka, Ishwar Prasad Khatiwada and Dr Ananda Mohan Bhattarai.

Advocates representing the government side argued HoR was dissolved by exercising the right granted by the constitution.

The writ petitioners’ side will respond to government attorneys after the Speaker’s legal practitioner concludes the arguments Sunday. A time of three hours has been fixed for that and it will be followed by the turn of an amicus curie and a time of two hours has been fixed for that. Then the Court is expected to give its verdict on the case.

The pleading of legal practitioners on behalf of the petitioners had concluded on Sunday and they were given 12 hours to put the arguments. It may be noted 146 members in the dissolved HoR including the Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba reached the court, demanding the restoration of the HoR and the appointment of Deuba as the (new) Prime Minister of Nepal in accordance with Article 76 (5) of the constitution.

A total of 30 writs were registered at the court over this matter, seeking to rescind the President’s May 22 move to dissolve the HoR and announce the snap polls for November 12 and 19 on the recommendation of the Council of Ministers.
