The CPN (UML) has called a meeting of its standing committee at 4 pm, today.

As usual, the ruling party's SC meeting will be held at the Prime Minister's official residence in Baluwatar.

The meeting will discuss the mid-term elections, the unfolding political situation and the party's internal everyday issues, party office secretary Sher Bahadur Tamang said.

It is likely that the issue of taking disciplinary action against the lawmakers who decided to endorse opposition alliance's Prime Ministerial candidate will also be tabled at the meeting.

In compliance with the Cabinet's midnight recommendation, President Bidya Devi Bhandari dissolved the House of Representatives late Saturday.

The President has called early elections, the dates being set for November 12 and November 19.
