Claiming that even some leaders of Nepali Congress and CPN (UML) agree that the President's move on the Army chief row was 'unconstitutional', though it was political in nature, Shrestha said the parties would now have to publicly accept that it (the President's move) hindered 'civilian supremacy'.
Similarly, former Prime Minister Lokendra Bahadur Chand urged the opposition party - UCPN (Maoist) - to table a no-confidence motion against the current government as a means to end the current deadlock.
Mentioning that the national sovereignty was at stake, Chand called on the bigger parties to sideline partisan interests for 'greater national cause'. He said parties must focus on writing a new constitution rather than on changing governments. nepalnews.com
