Nepal President Ram Baran Yadav on 29 May 2012 removed Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai from his post, but asked him to keep the charge until some alternative arrangements are put into place. Bhattarai was instructed by the president to step down as he was no longer a member of the House.

The president’s instruction came despite Bhattarai’s repeated claim to continue on the top-notch position. He would, however, continue as a full-fledged prime minister even though Parliament has been dissolved over its inability to deliver a new constitution by the 27 May 2012 deadline.

Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai on 28 May 2012 had dissolved the Constituent Assembly as it failed to deliver the constitution before its last deadline. The move to dissolve four-year old constitution committee left the Himalayan nation in a legal vacuum.
