Although winter has almost ended in the Himalayan country, Nepal's parliament is to begin its Winter Session on Sunday. 

The Lower House of the Country known as House of Representatives will resume its procedures following the Supreme Court's order.

The House was previously dissolved by prime minister KP Oli which was later revoked by the Supreme Court of the Country deeming the prime minister's action unconstitutional. 

President of Nepal Bidya Devi Bhandari had dissolved the house on the recommendation from the Council of Ministers. Now, the President has once again called to resume the parliament on the recommendation of the same council of ministers that recommended to dissolve.

Prime Minister Khadga Prasad Oli has been widely criticized for his actions to dissolve the parliament. He has, however, insisted that the dissolution is a requirement to go to the public for a fresh mandate.

The two factions of the ruling party have parted ways, although they remain on the same party constitutionally, and they claim to be the original.

The Dahal-Nepal Faction led by former Maoist Supreme Commander and former PM Prachanda and former PM Madhav Kumar Nepal is opposing the ruling faction saying the KP Oli government has been authoritarian and self-centered.

KP Oli, backed by former Maoist Leader and the current Home Minister Ram Bahadur Thapa Badal, accuses the opposing faction of orchestrating political instability and being the pawn of foreign forces, mainly India.

The Prime minister is likely to face a vote of no confidence and the President will likely face an Impeachment trial.

The talks are being held by both factions with the opposition parties to get enough support to be in the government.

The country situated between India is China is said to be a strategic pivot to India, China, and the West for their influence in two of the world's fastest-growing economies.

Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has been rigid in his position that he would not be resigning from the post, which deepens the political crisis in the Country.
