Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai met President Ram Baran Yadav at the latter office, Shital Niwas, Tuesday morning to discuss the political scenario after the dissolution of the Constituent Assembly.
Issuing a press note, PM Bhattarai's private secretariat said the PM stressed the need for consensus among the parties. "Since the constitution does not anticipate dissolution of the CA and its fresh election we need to reach political understanding," said he.
Bhattarai also mentioned that he expected support from the President in his efforts to forge political consensus.
According to the press note, President Yadav assured of support the government, emphaising that both the government and the President's office should facilitate political understanding by remaining within the constitutional boundary.
"I will provide all necessary support to you as the head of the government. Both of us need to move ahead by reaching an understanding," President Yadav said.
This was PM Bhattarai's second meeting with the President after the government's decision to hold fresh election of the CA on 22 November.
President Yadav is yet to approve the cabinet decision. He is set to hold legal consultations before arriving at a decision. nepalnews.com
