Supreme Court Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher Rana has assigned 19 writ petitions related to the dissolution of House of Representatives to his bench.

The Office of the President has been made defendant in all the petitions that will be heard by CJ Rana on Thursday.

CJ Rana will proceed with 19 of the 30 cases that had been filed demanding reinstatement of the House, today.

On Friday, eleven of the writs, including the one filed by majority of former lawmakers demanding House reinstatement as well as appointment of NC President Sher Bahadur Deuba as the PM, will be granted session.
