N24 Correspondent, KATHMANDU:- CPN-UML has directed its 23 outgoing lawmakers to withdraw their signatures within two days of their use in the case pending in the Supreme Court.

The Central Committee meeting convened on Friday dismissed the 10th National General Convention Organizing Committee and passed a resolution directing to withdraw the signatures.

A total of 146 lawmakers went to the Supreme Court demanding the abolition of the House of Representatives and the appointment of Deuba as prime minister. There are 23 outgoing MPs of senior leader Madhav Nepal faction going to court.

The case is being heard in the Constitutional Court of the Supreme Court since June 25. The debate between the writ petitioner and the government side is over. The amicus curiae will now be debated and a verdict is expected in a few days.
