Nepal’s constitution crisis seemed to have been resolved in February 2021 after the Supreme Court overturned Prime Minister K.P. Oli’s December 2020 decision to dissolve the Parliament. However, the revival of the House has not helped as neither has the Oli government been challenged with a no-confidence motion, nor have the Maoists withdrawn support to it; nor has Oli resigned on moral grounds. The discussion will try to understand the political conundrum that has lasted more than two months and trace its root causes.
