CPN (UML) chairperson Jhalanath Khanal has said that a majority government would be in place, if the efforts to form a consensus government fail.
"We are consulting with Nepali Congress and other political forces to form a consensus government," Khanal told a delegation of European Union's ambassadors to Nepal, as they visited Khanal at the UML headquarters at Balkhu, Kathmandu on Monday.
"In the case of a consensus government not happening, a strong majority government will be formed," Khanal said.
Khanal further said the government will not be a feeble and unstable one as in the past.
The to-be-formed government will not only carry out normal tasks but will execute development projects through the full-fledged development budget as per the people’s aspirations expressed during the election, he added.
"The government will also hold local election soon and the Election Commission has already been consulted in respect to necessary preparations for it," Khanal asserted.
On the occasion, the EU ambassadors congratulated the CPN (UML) for its outstanding performance in the election.
The delegation also expressed its great appreciation of the Nepali people for their overwhelming participation in the democratic process.
Khanal, in return, appreciated the EU's continued support to the development and peace process of Nepal.
The UML chief specially thanked the international community for their strong support in favor of a free and fair election in Nepal.
EU had sent a strong team of election observers during the November 19 elections of the Constituent Assembly. The detailed observation report is expected to be released shortly.
