The Nepali Congress and Rastriya Janata Party-Nepal, which had been obstructing the meeting of the House of Representatives on Monday agreed to end the obstruction.
In the meeting on Monday an agreement was reached to resume the House without further obstruction and to make it more effective, Rojnath Pandey, Spokesperson for the Parliament Secretariat, said.
The House meeting was halted on July 10. Except for the meeting on July 24, which discussed an urgent motion of public importance related to floods and landslides in the country, no meeting had been possible due to obstruction. The meetings were either obstructed by the opposition or postponed with notices issued by the Parliament Secretariat.
Opposition parties had insisted that a panel be formed to investigative two alleged cases of extrajudicial killings in Sarlahi district.
The House resumed after the government agreed to form a parliamentary special committee to prevent such obstructions of the House in future.
The committee — formed under the coordination of Nepal Communist Party (NCP) leader and former Speaker Subash Chandra Nembang — will give advice based on the country’s constitution and regulations to avoid such disruptions in House proceedings.
