Small left parties oppose ongoing efforts of major political forces to appoint CJ as new PM
Four small left parties including the CPN-Maoist organised a protest rally in the capital on Sunday afternoon against the ongoing efforts to form election government headed by the incumbent Chief Justice (CJ).
Saying that appointing the Chief Justice as the prime minister of the country would be in stark violation of the interim constitution, the concept of multi-party contention and national sovereignty, the four fringe parties – CPN-Maoist, CPN (Maoist), CPN (Unified) and Revolutionary
Communist Party – took out a protest rally from Shantibatika, Ratnapark. The rally passed through Bagbazar, Putalisadak, Shahid Gate before converging into a corner gathering at the same place.
CPN-Maoist spokesperson Pampha Bhusal, CPN (Maoist) coordinator Matrika Yadav and General Secretary of the Revolutionary Communist Party Mani Thapa addressed the gathering and opposed the attempts of the four major parties to reach a consensus on appointing the CJ as the head of the election government.
Bhusal said her party would severely protest and thwart any efforts to appoint the CJ as the country’s new prime minister. Similarly, Yadav termed the decision of the four major parties to form a CJ-led election government as “unconstitutional”, adding that the same person could not lead both the judiciary and executive. nepalnews.com
