In its parliamentary board's meeting held at party headquarters, Sanepa, Lalitpur, on Friday, Nepali Congress has decided to move ahead forging consensus with all political parties in terms of government formation and the constitution making process.
To fulfill its objective, the NC will intensely take ahead dialogue and interactions with all political parties, according to its leaders.
The meeting also dwelled on how to select the Constituent Assembly (CA) members under the Proportional Representation (PR) category. NC has to choose 91 CA members for the final 335 PR seats, as per the votes the party received in the November 19 elections.
"The discussions were focused on coming up with certain standards, so that it becomes easier to decide on the PR name list," said NC spokesperson, Dilendra Prasad Badu. "We will submit the final list within the deadline given by the Election Commission," he added.
The Election Commission has decreed parties to submit name lists of PR candidates in a week. As per the calculation of EC, apart from NC's 91 seats, the second largest party CPN (UML) will get 84 PR seats followed by 54 seats of CPN (Maoist) and 24 seats of RPP-Nepal.
Thirty parties, in total, are eligible to receive the PR seats this time around, according to EC.
