KATHMANDU: Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai's political advisor Devendra Paudel today made a remark that President Dr Ram Baran Yadav has no right to interfere while parties are endeavoring to forge consensus on prickly issues.
“President Shouldn’t cross the constitutional limit as the Interim Constitution had not given him any executive right, “said Paudel on Monday morning while talking to a Kathmandu-based Radio FM.
Urging the President to abide by the Interim Constitution, Paudel accused President of trying to generate rift between the parties.
“A presidential intervention will only invite totalitarianism,” Paudel stated adding that parties are inching closer to consensus.
“ By the mid-November we will forge consensus on all thorny issues including a national unity government formation, CA’s fate—poll or reinstatement, and federalism,” said Paudel.
The head of the state has warned political stakeholders, of a probable presidential intervention if they did not forge consensus by the time of their self-imposed deadline.
Parties failed to meet their self-imposed first deadline of September 15 and they are not likely to forge consensus by the second deadline — October 16 — set by them before the President.
