A writ petition has been registered at the Supreme Court (SC) against the ‘unconstitutional’ reshuffled of the Council of Ministers by Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli on Friday, last week.
Senior advocate Dinesh Tripathi and advocate Kanchan Krishna Neupane, on Monday, registered the writ petition claiming Friday’s reshuffle.
Petitioners argued that PM Oli, who has remained as the caretaker prime minister as he failed to win trust vote in parliament, could not reshuffle the Cabinet.
PM Oli made several changes in his Cabinet on Friday relieving some of the ministers from his party, CPN-UML while picking ten others from the Thakur faction of the Janata Samajbadi Party (JSP).
