The Supreme Court of Nepal has passed an order asking the Election Commission to allow the induction of CPN-UML lawmakers Som Prasad Pandey and Sharada Devi Bhatta into CPN (Unified Socialist), the newly formed political outfit.
The Supreme Court bench compromised of Judges Ishwar Khatiwada and Nahakul Subedi. They passed the order after a writ was petitioned by Pandey and Bhatta.
The court had earlier sounded the CPN-UML party not to take any action against the lawmakers if they chose to join the CPN (Unified Socialist).
Both the lawmakers wanted to join the CPN (Unified Socialist). Despite their inclination, a fumble on the lawmakers caused this court battle. They had earlier missed the signing of the party registration application. After their faux pas, Election Commission refused to recognize them as members of CPN (Unified Socialist).
The refusal to recognize the political migration would have resulted in the loss of the official positions that the lawmakers held. However, the Supreme Court order has nullified such an instance.
