KATHMANDU: President Dr Ram Baran Yadav has advised political parties to forge consensus among themselves at the earliest over all the thorny issues, which have heightened political crisis and constitutional hurdles in the wake of the demise of Constituent Assembly (CA).
While parties had reached to President’s Office to urge the head of the state to take initiative to bail the country out of the ongoing political impasse, President once again suggested big guns of the 27 political parties to reach to an understating over the contentious issues including election, ordinances, and formation of a unity government.
It has been learn that parties pledged president to intensify their effort to forge consensus.
Oppositions and the ruling parties are at bad terms over various issues since the dissolution of the Constituent Assembly (CA) on May 27.
To be more precise, the meeting which lasted for about six hours in Sheetal Niwas did not come up with a way out.
President Yadav just directed the leaders to work towards forging consensus among the political parties, saying that it will clear the decks for the formation of the new government.
As soon as the meeting commenced on Sunday morning, parties had floated three alternatives to the head of the state. According to NC leader Ram Sharan Mahat, the three options were:
1. The incumbent government should be replaced by a consensus government
2. PM should resign following a deal or not
3. Constitutional hurdles should be cleared prior government formation or not.
But these options saw only exchange of views, said NC's senior leader Sher Bahadur Deuba.
Following the dissolution of the Constituent Assembly on May 27, President has not been holding meetings time and again but neither the government nor the political parties are being able to find a way out to the political impasse in the last two months.
Today also President reiterated that he won’t cross the constitutional limit despite the fact that oppositions have been urging him to act to end the present crisis.
