KATHMANDU: Chairman of the Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal, Kamal Thapa, said today that a new government should be formed to hold elections to the Constituent Assembly.
RPP-Nepal Chairman Thapa, speaking at an interaction organised at the Rafat Media Club, said the present crisis can be resolved if an independent government is formed under incumbent or former Chief Justice to hold elections.
Political parties have no option but to form a small government, comprising experienced and independent people, Thapa argued.
He further said that the parties, which deceived the king, are now piling pressure on the President to make an unconstitutional move. He did not elaborate.
Thapa opined that the Constituent Assembly was dissolved due to the Maoists’ plot to capture the state powers through elections. He accused the Nepali Congress and the CPN-UML of resorting to authoritarianism in the name of democracy. Thapa likened the present situation of the country to that of 1990. The dissolution of the Constituent Assembly means that proclamation of the republic is no longer valid, he said.
