KATHMANDU: The seventh Session of the House of Representatives (HoR) has commenced Sunday following the Supreme Court’s landmark verdict on February 23 to reinstate the House.

The House session is taking place at a time when the Supreme Court gave its verdict in favor of the Nepal Communist Party (NCP) led by Rishi Ram Kattel on Sunday.

President Bidya Devi Bhandari has summoned the HoR session on the recommendation of the government as per the constitutional provision.

Prime Minister KP Oli had dissolved the HoR on December 20, 2020 and announced a fresh mid-term poll.

The constitution has a provision which says there should not be a gap of more than six months between the Monsoon Session and the Winter Session of the Federal Parliament. The Sixth Session of the HoR was concluded on July 1.

The Seventh Session of the National Assembly, the upper house of the Federal Parliament, was summoned on January 1 and it concluded after running for a few days.

Today’s HoR meeting has been taken as meaningful following its restoration by the court recently. A total of 269 parliamentarians and Speaker are expected to be present in the meeting.

Like earlier, a letter calling the session sent from the President Office would be read out and top leaders of political parties representing in the HoR would deliver a welcome speech.

According to a constitutional provision, there are 275 HoR members including 165 elected under the direct electoral system and 110 under the proportional electoral system.
