December 20, 2020: In a shocking development, the Nepal Cabinet has recommended to dissolve the parliament.



At an emergency meeting called by Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli on Sunday morning, the council of ministers recommended to dissolve the Parliament. "It (recommendation) has been sent to the President," said Energy Minister Barsaman Pun.



It was not immediately clear what triggered the decision.



The opposition has slammed the move. "The decision has been made in haste as all the ministers weren’t present in the cabinet meeting this morning. This is against the democratic norms and would take the nation backwards. It can’t be implemented," fumed Narayankaji Shrestha, Spokesperson of ruling Nepal Communist Party.
