Thousands march against the dissolution of the parliament of the prime minister of Nepal

Thousands march against the dissolution of the parliament of the prime minister of Nepal

Thousands of opponents of the Prime Minister of Nepal, K.P. Sharma Oli marched through the streets of Kathmandu on Tuesday to urge him to reverse his decision to dissolve parliament and call early elections.

The protesters, who say their December 20 decision was unconstitutional, demonstrated in front of their office despite coronavirus restrictions on gatherings.

Oli says that internal disputes and lack of cooperation from his party have paralyzed decision-making, forcing him to seek a new popular mandate.

Police officers overseeing security said at least 10,000 people were on the streets to take part in the march, one of the most intense protests the country has seen since Oli dissolved parliament.

"We have tactfully managed the rally of about 10,000 protesters," said Basanta Bahadur Kunwar, a police spokesman.

In January, the country's highest court will continue to hear dozens of petitions filed against Oli's political movement and its plans to move forward with next year's parliamentary elections on April 30 and May 10, less than two years before the scheduled date.

"The prime minister has no authority to dissolve parliament under the constitution. Therefore, he must reverse his decision immediately," said 19-year-old student Rajesh Thapa, waving a flag with a red hammer and sickle printed on it, a symbol of the ruling Communist Party.
