Experts believe that the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal has landed in an unprecedented crisis due to non-approval of the Constitution Amendment Bill by the President. This is the first time in the last 7 years since the new constitution came into force in 2015, that a President has badly hurt the sovereignty of Parliament. The rights and duties of the President are clearly mentioned in the Constitution of Nepal. Under this, they can return a bill to the Parliament for reconsideration only once. Bhandari had already exercised this right.

Despite this, the President’s Office has claimed that this step of the President is constitutional. Adviser to the President Lalbabu Yadav said that Article 61(4) states that the main duty of the President shall be to uphold and protect the Constitution. It means the job of the President is to protect all the interests of the Constitution. Looking at Article 113 only, it cannot be said that the President did not do so. Although Article 113(2) of the Constitution states that a bill to be presented before the President has to be approved within 15 days and both the Houses will be informed about it.
