A petition was also filed by a coalition of opposition parties, seeking restoration of the lower house of parliament and the appointment of Nepali Congress president Sher Bahadur Deuba as prime minister. The petition has the signatures of 146 MPs. The Constitutional Bench of the court had completed hearing on various petitions on July 5. A four-member amicus curiae has also given his opinion in this regard.
Senior advocate Dinesh Tripathi, one of the petitioners, said that the court is likely to pronounce the verdict on Monday. Tripathi said that the court will take into account the provisions of the Constitution and past precedents while giving its verdict and it will be a historic decision. The Election Commission last week announced the schedule for the upcoming mid-term elections, under which the election process will begin from July 15.
