Federal Alliance delays response on Karki impeachment

KATHMANDU: The Federal Alliance, consisting of parties dissatisfied with the Constitution, on Thursday said it would not form its official view on the impeachment motion filed against the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority chief Lok Man Karki unless the proposers clarified the intent behind it.

The decision was made in a meeting chaired by Federal Socialist Forum-Nepal Chairman Upendra Yadav at the party’s central office in Tinkune.

According to the issued after the meeting, the block wanted an explanation on why the motion was filed without any consultation with them.
