KATHMANDU: The Supreme Court (SC) is hearing the writ petitions filed against the dissolution of the House of Representatives (HoR) on Wednesday.

The Office of the President, the Office of the Prime Minister and the Council of Ministers and the Speaker of the House of Representatives have registered their written responses in the court as per the SC’s order issued on December 25.

Similarly, the Constitutional Bench has also formed an amicus curiae comprising three senior advocates from Nepal Bar Association. The names of Badri Bahadur Karki, Satishkrishna Kharel and Bijayakanta Mainali have been recommend.

The five-member Constitutional Bench of the SC led by Chief Justice Cholendra Shamsher Rana will hear the writ petitions filed against the government’s move to dissolve the HoR.

The Constitutional Bench has Justices Bishwombhar Prasad Shrestha, Hari Krishna Karki, Anil Kumar Sinha and Tej Bahadur KC as members.

The Bench will hear 13 writ petitions filed at the apex court against the HoR dissolution today.

It will give a final verdict on the issue whether the HoR dissolution was in line with the constitution or not.

CJ Rana has picked Justices for the Constitutional Bench in random, not based on seniority.

Earlier, advocates had raised questions over the formation of the Constitutional Bench arguing that the formation of the Constitutional Bench is not in line with the provision of the Constitution.

The writs were registered at the Supreme Court against the decision naming the Office of the President, Office of the Prime Minster and the Council of Ministers and House Speaker as defendants.

It may be noted that President Bidya Bhandari had dissolved the HoR on the recommendation of Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli.
