Nepal Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli has signalled that he has no intention of resigning from his post, a day after the country’s Supreme Court reinstated the dissolved Parliament, and ordered the government to summon a House session by March 6.
Oli mocked his opponents, Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ and Madhav Kumar Nepal who jointly head a rival faction of the ruling Nepal Communist Party, for distributing sweets after the court verdict.
'What are they celebrating? Maybe they will start demanding my resignation again,' Oli said.
The top court's move comes two months after Oli dissolved the House and called for an early election amid a tussle for power with his rivals in the ruling communist party.
