Deuba Prachanda and Madhav will become Prime Minister with the support of Nepal. Both of them are being called pro-China. How long this friendship will last is also a big question.
Sher Bahadur Deuba will again take charge of the country as the Prime Minister of Nepal.
Political Crisis in Nepal: Today there will be talk of Nepal, India’s neighboring country; Where the political and legal cycle of events is turning fast again. Nepal’s Supreme Court, in an important order, on Monday reinstated the lower house of the Nepali Parliament, the House of Representatives, for the second time in five months. The country’s senior leader and former Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has been asked to become the Prime Minister within two days.
The court also ordered to convene the session of the House of Representatives on July 18 by 5 pm. Under Section 76, sub-section 4 of the Nepalese Constitution, Deuba must prove his majority in the House within 30 days of his appointment. The Constitutional Bench of the Supreme Court that heard the matter included Chief Justice Cholendra Shamsher Rana and his subsequent four senior most judges, Deepak Kumar Karki, Meera Khadka, Ishwar Prasad Khatiwad and Dr Anand Mohan Bhattarai.
Petition against the President’s move
Earlier this year, on May 22, Nepal’s President Bidya Devi Bhandari, on the recommendation of Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, dissolved the House of Representatives and ordered re-elections on November 12 and 19. Against this move of President Bhandari, 30 writ petitions were filed in the Supreme Court. In these petitions, 149 MPs, including the current chief of the Nepali Congress, Sher Bahadur Deuba, had requested to restore the House of Representatives and declare Deuba as the Prime Minister. The demand was also supported by Nepali Communist Party (UML) leader Madhav Kumar Nepal, Nepali Congress Party (Maoist) leader Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda and their supporters.
Big blow to Oli from Supreme Court
Today’s decision of the Supreme Court came after hearing these petitions and it is a big setback for Prime Minister Oli. Responding to the court’s decision, Pradeep Gyawali, spokesperson of the Oli faction of the Communist Party of Nepal (UML) and former foreign minister, called it unexpected and against the basic principles of the Constitution. But at the same time he also said that his party will obey the order of the court.
question mark on elections
Before today’s decision of the Supreme Court, the Election Commission of Nepal was engaged in preparing for the mid-term elections in November. But now a question mark has been raised on the conduct of this election. Senior political analysts of Nepal believe that Sher Bahadur Deuba will definitely take oath as the Prime Minister in the next 48 hours, but will he be able to run his government for the next 16 months when the term of this House of Representatives ends? The biggest thing in Deuba’s favor is that the country’s two former prime ministers and communist leaders, Madhav Nepal and Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda, are supporting him. Along with this, opposition parties like Deuba’s own party Nepali Congress and Janata Samajwadi Party are also with him.
Many challenges in front of Deuba
There are also many serious challenges for Sher Bahadur Deuba. Everyone should obey the order of the Supreme Court, there is such a belief. But Mahesh Basnet, a youth leader of the Oli faction of the Communist Party of Nepal (UML), has declared that he and his supporters will not accept the court’s decision and will come out on the streets to ask the public to decide.
This statement can become a cause of concern for Deuba because when there are protests on the streets, then there is a danger of it becoming uncontrollable. It is also worth noting that the Chief Commissioner of the Election Commission is considered a close aide of Prime Minister Oli.
Today’s decision of the Supreme Court is being called a milestone in Nepal media. It would also be considered a blow to the conduct of Bidya Devi Bhandari as the President of the country. Constitutional experts of the country say that this decision will serve as an example in the development of the democratic system in Nepal. This decision has well defined Article 76 of the Constitution of Nepal. Section 76 contains the conditions under which Parliament can be dissolved. Today’s judgment has also defined the legal powers of the Court. Along with this, the powers of the Prime Minister as an executive and his right to dissolve the Parliament have also been explained.
India’s eyes on the whole matter
India is also watching this development cycle of Nepal very carefully. It is believed that till now India has given silent support to Prime Minister Oli, due to which other political parties of Nepal are not very satisfied. Deuba, Prachanda and Madhav will become Prime Minister with the support of Nepal. Both of them are being called pro-China. How long this friendship will last is also a big question. However, surprise in politics, that is, unexpected development can happen at any time. But it is certain that Deuba will have to make a lot of effort to maintain his government for 16 months.
