President has no right to test PM’s vote of confidence: Speaker Sapkota

N24 Correspondent, KATHMANDU:- Speaker Agni Prasad Sapkota has said that the President does not have the right to test the vote of confidence of the Prime Minister. This was stated by Speaker Sapkota while submitting a written reply to the writ petition filed by 146 lawmakers against the dissolution of the House of Representatives.

After Sher Bahadur Deuba’s demand to appoint the Prime Minister in accordance with Article 76 (5) of the Constitution with the support of 149 members in the House of Representatives, the House of Representatives is the only place to test the basis for a vote of confidence, said Speaker Sapkota. Not even the situation is given by Section 76 (5) and Section 66. Therefore, even the actions of the President are unconstitutional. ‘

A total of 93 members of the House of Representatives have expressed support for Prime Minister KP Oli, the speaker said. Based on this fact, the Speaker has said that it is unconstitutional and moral to claim Oli as the Prime Minister as per Article 76 (5).

“The Prime Minister, who has publicly acknowledged that he does not have the confidence of the House of Representatives, is again unconstitutionally and morally inclined to make a claim to the President that he has the support of the majority of the members,” he said.
