KATHMANDU: Nepal Communist Party (NCP) Prachanda-Nepal faction Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has said that the parliament dissolved by Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli will be reinstated.

Talking to foreign media representatives working in Nepal, Prachanda said, “We are confident that the House of Representatives will be reinstated, adding, “the election will not be held on April 30 and May 10 under any circumstances.”

He said KP Oli has made another unconstitutional and undemocratic move by announcing the elections.

He claimed that he has been cooperating with Madhav Nepal for four decades and that the current row in the NCP was not for a seat or a post.

Meanwhile, the government has finalized the districts and provinces for holding elections in two phases on April 30 and May 10.

A cabinet meeting held on Monday has decided to hold elections in 40 districts of Pradesh 2, Gandaki, Lumbini and Karnali Pradesh on April 30.

Similarly, the elections will be held in 37 districts of Pradesh 1, Bagmati and Sudurpaschim on May 10, according to the decision.

Prime Minister KP Oli had announced to hold mid-term polls on April 30 and May 10 following the dissolution of the House of Representatives (HoR) on December 20.

However, the Supreme Court has not yet given its final verdict on the writ petitions filed against the dissolution of the HoR.

The Prachanda-Nepal faction of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) and other opposition parties including Nepali Congress have been saying that it is not possible to conduct elections in April.

Amidst speculations surrounding the upcoming elections, Prime Minister Oli visited the Office of the Election Commission (EC) to discuss the election preparations Tuesday.
