KATHMANDU: After holding bilateral, trilateral, quadrilateral talks, and parleys with the indigenous caucus over the unsettled issues in the constitution, top guns are finally seeking a short-cut way to promulgate the new statute today.
Briefing the recent development surfaced on the talks over state restructuring-- the thorniest issue in the new statute-- which awaits the midnight to be promulgated, to the Constituent Assembly (CA) Chairman Subash Nembang, top leaders of the UCPN-Maoist, the Nepali Congress (NC) the CPN-UML, and the United Demorcatic Madhesi Front (UDMF) have asked the CA chair to find a route shorter than the usual one to promulgate the new constitution.
Parties also apprised Nembang at Singha Durbar that the political parties are all set to promulgate the statute by the midnight and handover the unresolved issues in the statute to the ‘transformed parliament.’
Earlier at PM’s official residence in Baluwatar, parties made up their mind that substantial issues will be resolved by the midnight, while the technical issues will be resolved by the transformed parliament, said Maoist leader Agni Kharel.
According to Kharel, “now the discussion is centered on 10 provinces.”
Similarly, another Maoist leader Lokendra Bista Maghar said, parties have tentatively agreed on identity based mixed federal states.
