PM Oli gives the meeting a miss


Speaker of the now-dissolved House of Representatives Agni Prasad Sapkota has called an all-party meeting to discuss issues related to dissolution of the House of Representatives.

The meeting is underway at the Federal Parliament building in New Baneshwar.

Most of the senior political figures are attending the meeting convened by Speaker Sapkota wherein measures to address the ongoing political limbo are being discussed.

However, Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, who was also invited to the meeting, has given it a miss.

Disgruntled leaders of PM Oli's ruling party CPN-UML Jhalanath Khanal and Madhav Nepal, Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba, Chairs of Janata Samajbadi Party-Nepal Upendra Yadav and Baburam Bhattarai are attending the discussions.

The Speaker had held several rounds of discussions with former Speakers of the House, and other constitutional experts following the dissolution of the House in a bid to look for a solution to the current crisis.
