Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal has called for a political consensus and unity for institutionalising democracy in the country.
Speaking at an inauguration of the national conference organised by former MPs Club on the occasion of International Democracy Day in the capital, Tuesday, PM Nepal said logical conclusion of peace process and writing constitution on time are crucial to strengthening democratic culture in Nepal.
He also stressed the need to end the politics of obstruction and boycotting of parliament for political unity.
He further said stability and democracy are prerequisites for economic progress and development and decreasing the rich-poor gap.
Speaking at the same function, Constituent Assembly chairman Subas Nemwang said it is impossible for the country to get a new constitution, which would hinder stabilising democracy, if the parties fail to lessen their differences. nepalnews.com
