A leader of Nepali Congress (NC) has said that the appointments in the remaining 26 Constituent Assembly (CA) seats will be made soon, so that the CA could get a full shape and speed up the constitution drafting process.
“Major political parties are currently engaged in the talks about appointing the 26 CA members,” said NC leader Dip Kumar Upadhyay while speaking at an interaction program in Kathmandu, Saturday.
“We are hopeful that the parties will soon reach an understanding in this regard,” Upadhyay said.
He added that the government will further take up initiatives to fill up vacant posts in the constitutional and other public bodies.
On the question of who will lead the High Level Political Committee (HLPC) at a time when UCPN (Maoist) has put forth its claim, Upadhyay said a consensus will be set up soon on this matter as well.
Speaking at the same program, UCPN (Maoist) leader Janardan Sharma alleged that the government is moving ahead forcefully instead of forging consensus on matters of peace process and constitution writing.
“A suitable outlet cannot be found ignoring an important side of the peace process,” Sharma said.
