By N24 Correspondent, KATHMANDU:- Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has furnished replies to the Supreme Court on the ongoing House dissolution case, defending that his decision to dissolve the House and declare election on December 20, 2020 was a political issue.

“It has been a practice that political issues should not enter the court of law. I took the political decision based on my prerogatives as the prime minister of Nepal,” PM Oli said in his written reply submitted through the Office of the Attorney General.

“We have an upcoming election now. It is now upto the people to judge my decision as to whether it was right or wrong. But the court should not be judging my political decision,” PM Oli said.

PM Oli further said his decision to dissolve the House was the result of his compulsions as well.

“Some leaders of Nepal Communist Party (NCP) continuously extended non-cooperation and hostility to me and created an unfavorable environment for me to work as the prime minister of Nepal. I was compelled to take the decision,” PM Oli said.

In a separate reply to the Supreme Court, the Office of President Bidya Devi Bhandari said the decision of President Bhandari to endorse the recommendation of PM Oli to dissolve the House was as per the provisions of the constitution.

“In this context, we demand that the writ petitions filed against the House dissolution decision be annulled by the Supreme Court,” said Dr. Hari Poudel, Secretary at President Bhandari’s office, in his reply to the Supreme Court on behalf of President Bhandari.
