Dissatisfaction mounting in ruling parties over lawmakers' nomination

Privacy Policy

Dissatisfaction is mounting in the ruling coalition parties - Nepali Congress and CPN (UML), over the nomination and appointment of lawmakers in the 26 vacant positions in the Constituent Assembly.

Speaking at an event in Kathmandu on Sunday, the leaders of NC and CPN (UML) said no discussions were held prior to the decision of nomination by the chairman/president of the parties.

Leader of NC, Arjun Narasingh KC said although there are no issues with those who were nominated, the nominations came without a unanimous consensus within the party.

He expressed dissatisfaction over the fact that the decision was made bypassing the NC central committee, which he said was not democratic in character.

Similarly, Vice-Chair of CPN (UML) Bhim Rawal said there was no internal discussion in the party regarding the names of the eight candidates, nominated to the vacant posts of lawmakers.

He stated that perhaps the chairman of his party (UML) and the Prime Minister were aware of the process but the central committee had no prior knowledge of the same.

In the event, the leaders said that the UCPN (Maoist) are trying to put hurdle in the process of constitution making process by raising the issues of High-Level Political Committee formation. According to them, formation of HLPC will only delay the constitution formulation.
