By N24 Staff Writer, KATHMANDU:- The ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) is all set to split into two political parties on Tuesday, December 22, 2020, amid two factions of NCP organizing their own party meeting in two different places in the Nepalese capital.

Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli is organizing a party meeting at the PM’s official residence in Baluwatar. PM Oli was set to announce action against current NCP leaders including senior leader Madhav Kumar Nepal and co-chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal “Prachanda”.

In another meeting, NCP senior leader Nepal and co-chair Prachanda were all set to announce disciplinary action against PM Oli for dissolving the House of Representatives without consulting the party.

NCP’s meeting was scheduled to be held in Karki Banquet in Babarmahal, Kathmandu, in which future course of action would also be announced.

Meanwhile, PM Oli and NCP senior leader Nepal have started their own efforts to lure party leaders to stand in their favor.

A meeting of PM Oli’s supporters has started at 9 am Tuesday, while senior leader Nepal and Prachanda’s supporters were scheduled to start meeting at 1 pm Tuesday.

Nepal’s politics has taken a new turn since PM KP Oli recommended dissolving the lower house and President Bidya Devi Bhandari approved the recommendation on Sunday, December 20, 2020, thus declaring new election date for April-May, 2021.

“It is now upto the Supreme Court to decide whether there will be an election or the House of Representatives will be restored,” said constitution expert Bhimarjun Acharya.

Eleven writ petitions were registered at the Supreme Court claiming that the House dissolution was unconstitutional. The Supreme Court will start hearing those writ petitions on Wednesday, December 23, 2020.
