Big four fail to convince fringe parties on CJ-led govt
Most of the smaller parties represented in the dissolved Constituent Assembly rejected the idea of an election government headed by the Chief Justice during an all-party discussion called by the four major parties - UCPN (Maoist), Nepali Congress, UML and Madhesi Front - on Monday.
Except for the Sarat Singh Bhadari-led Rastriya Madhes Samajwadi Party, leaders of all other fringe parties opposed the preparations to install CJ-led government. "The leaders of the big parties said the option is meant for conducting the elections, but the we were not convinced," said Rishi Kattel, chairman of CPN (Unified). He said that the major parties also did not appear to have resolved any of the issues in a concrete way.
Sadbhawana Party Nepal's Sarita Giri said, "The CA became a martyrs because of the major parties. They are going to make the Chief Justice a new martyr."
Likewise, Rastriya Janashakti Party vice chairman Prakash Chandra Lohani said that the major parties were just trying to impose their decisions on other parties parties and that this would not be acceptable. nepalnews.com
