A writ has been filed in the Supreme Court by Pravesh KC against the ordinance on political parties (Second Amendment) brought by the government to facilitate party splitting.
Advocate Pravesh KC has filed a writ petition saying that the ordinance is unconstitutional.
In the writ, an interim order has been sought to repeal the ordinance issued on the recommendation of the Council of Ministers in accordance with Article 114 (1) of the Constitution.
The apex administration has stated that the writ has been submitted for registration and a study is being done regarding the registration.
On Wednesday, President Bidya Devi Bhandari had issued the recommendation on the recommendation of the Council of Ministers.
The ordinance provides for the division of parties in the Central Committee or Parliamentary Party on the basis of 20 percent of the number.
As soon as the ordinance was issued, CPN-UML (Samajbadi) nominated for Madhav Kumar Nepal and Janata Samajwadi Party Nepal (Democratic) proposed for Mahanta Thakur have already applied for registration with the Election Commission.
