A meeting of the reinstated House of Representatives (HoR) is taking place at 1 pm on Wednesday.
The meeting convened for the first time following the reinstatement of the HoR on Sunday was stalled following the protest by the main opposition Nepali Congress.
The condolence motion on the demise of former lawmakers could not be passed due to the disruption by the opposition lawmakers.
No sooner Law Minister Lila Nath Shrestha began to table the ordinance than NC lawmakers started shouting slogans and gheraoed the rostrum demanding immediate withdrawal of the ordinance as soon as possible.
They had demanded immediate withdrawal of the ordinances that were supposed to be presented at the reinstated House of Representatives by the government.
Similarly, CPN (Maoist Center) lawmakers had also boycotted the house session Sunday arguing that the government lost its validity, and hence could not table ordinances.
The meeting scheduled for 1 pm is expected to pass a condolence motion and some ordinances, according to the parliament secretariat.
