Kathmandu : After the split of the ruling Communist Party of Nepal (CPN), the Supreme Court has refused to file a writ petition seeking a vote of confidence in Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli.

A single bench of Justice Bamkumar Shrestha also upheld the rate bench order of the apex administration on Thursday.

As soon as the bench presided over the bench, there would be no judicial test on whether the Prime Minister should take a vote of confidence or not. Petitioner Kirtinath Sharma Poudel informed that the bench also presented the order of the administration.

The bench has closed the option of judicial trial along with Dar Peeth Sadar.

The ruling party was divided after the Supreme Court ruled that the then CPN (UML) and the CPN (Maoist Center) would be separate parties on March 8, but the pro-government Maoist Center has not withdrawn its support yet.

Petitioner Poudel was of the view that a vote of confidence should be taken after the party split.
