Nepal's Supreme Court reinstates Parliament; Orders Sher Bahadur Deuba to be appointed as new Prime Minister

 KATHMANDU:Nepal's Supreme Court yesterday reinstated the Parliament and also ordered that Sher Bahadur Deuba be appointed as the Prime Minister.

The parliament was dissolved by caretaker Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli in May. Nepal was thrown into a constitutional crisis after Mr. Oli lost a confidence vote on the 10th of May. Nepal's President Bidya Devi Bhandari on the advice of Mr. Oli dissolved the parliament for a second time this year before opposition leader Mr. Deuba could stake their claim.

Yesterday's ruling by the Supreme Court reverses this decision and reinstates the Parliament. According to reports the court has ordered the parliament be reconvened within seven days.
