New govt can be formed under Article 298: Legal experts

Posted by Anup Baral July 16, 2016 :
Legal experts have suggested that a new government be formed under Article 298 at a time when the Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has been ruling out the formation of a new government. Nepali Congress President Sher bahadhur Deuba and CPN (Maoist Center) Chairman Puspa Kamal Dahal and other leaders of both the parties held discussions with legal experts over the formation of the new government. According to Surya Dhungel, a legal expert, a new government can be formed under the same Article 298, as the no confidence motion was filed against the current government formed under the same Article 298. Legal experts also suggested that there won't be any constitutional complexities to form a new government as there is a provision to form a new government under Article 298 and the Rule of 49 and 160 of the Legislature-Parliament Business Operations Regulations.

The Oli government is already in minority after CPN (Maoist Center) withdrew their support to his government. But Prime Minister Oli has been saying that he would face no confidence of motion rather than resigning from the post. Article 298 (2) of the Constitution of Nepal states that a new prime minister will be elected on the basis of consensus within seven days of the promulgation of the constitution with the parliamentary session in operation and in case the parliamentary session is already prorogued, within seven days of the commencement of the House session convened as per Article 296 (6).

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
