Kathmandu:

Thousands of opponents of Nepal's Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli marched through the streets of Kathmandu on Tuesday urging him to withdraw his decision to dissolve parliament and call for early elections.

The protesters, who say his decision on December 20 was unconstitutional, rallied outside his office despite coronavirus curbs on gatherings.

Oli says internal squabbling and a lack of cooperation from his party has paralysed decision-making, forcing him to seek a fresh popular mandate.
