KATHMANDU: The Supreme Court (SC) has fixed  May 27 and May 28 as the dates for hearing of writ petitions against dissolution of House of Representatives (HoR).

As many as 30 writ petitions have been filed at the SC against the HoR dissolution. Of them, 19 writ petitions have sought interim order and hearing in the ordinary session and 11 sought hearing in the Constitutional bench.

According to the SC, hearings on 19 writs in ordinary session will be held on Thursday, May 27, and hearing of the remaining 11 writs in Constitutional bench will be held on Friday, May 28.

After President Bidya Devi Bhandari ruled that there was no basis for the appointment of the Prime Minister as per Article 76 (5), the parliament was dissolved Friday night by the President on the recommendation of the Council of Ministers and the date of the election was fixed on November 12 and 19.

Stating that the dissolution of the parliament is unconstitutional, as many as 146 lawmakers Monday filed a writ petition at the apex court demanding the appointment of Sher Bahadur Deuba as the prime minister as per Article 76 (5) of the Constitution.
