Thousands of protesters took to the streets in Nepal to protest the dissolution of parliament. After the ruling Communist Party split into two factions, the president dissolved the Nepalese parliament on the recommendation of Prime Minister Khadga Prasad Sharma Oli, but thousands protested against the decision of Khadga Prasad Sharma Oli. They have taken to the streets demanding the restoration of parliament. According to news agencies, more than 10,000 protesters marched on the office of Prime Minister Khadga Prasad Sharma Oli in the capital Kathmandu. Protesters chanted slogans calling the prime minister’s move a coup. “We are protesting against the unconstitutional move of the prime minister and we will continue our protest till the parliament is restored,” said Laxman Lamsal, a member of the provincial assembly. Thousands rallied despite restrictions on large gatherings due to the corona virus. Prime Minister Khadga Prasad Sharma Oli recommended dissolving parliament, arguing that the ruling Communist Party’s internal squabbles had stalled the decision-making process. Bidhya Devi Bhandari had accepted Oli’s recommendation in early December.
