KATHMANDU: Some former lawmakers of Nepali Congress today met President Dr Ram Baran Yadav and urged him to reinstate the constituent Assembly to enable it to complete its remaining task of promulgating the constitution.
“We met the President and urged that this was the only one way to promulgate the constitution because there was no possibility of holding a new CA election as per the Interim Constitution,” Mohan Prasad Pandey, a former lawmaker said.
Half a dozen out of 65 lawmakers involved in the campaign asked Dr Yadav to reinstate the CA through presidential decree.
The President, however, said he would move forward with political consensus and in a legitimate manner.
Pandey said since 85 per cent work of the CA was completed, the Constitution could be promulgated within a month if the CA was reinstated and they were ready to work without salary and allowance.
In a meeting with leaders of Broader Madhesi Font, he said he would act on the basis of consensus among parties.
The leaders sought the Presidential step to form an electoral government. According to Sarita Giri, Chairman of Nepal Sadbhavana Party (Anandi Devi), the leaders asked the President to give alternative to the nation by forming electoral government through a roundtable conference.
Upendra Yadav, Chairman of Madhesi Democratic Forum said the PM had to resign to do away with uncertainty in the country as he had dissolved the CA leading to chaos.
