KATHMANDU: Senior advocate Purnaman Shakya, who was selected as the amicus curiae, said that Nepal’s Constitution does not give any residual rights to anyone, including the Prime Minister.

Giving his opinion in the Supreme Court’s Constitutional Bench hearing the issue of dissolution of the House of Representatives, Shakya said that the constitution of Nepal does not envision a government with unlimited powers.

Shakya asked whether the prime minister has residual powers citing that Nepal was suffering from the residual rights of the king in the past. He argued that the prime minister did not have the right to exercise the rights that have not been provisioned by the constitution.
