Parliament postponed till Tuesday

KATHMANDU: The House meeting that was supposed to begin at 3:00 pm today has been postponed till Tuesday after the political parties failed to forge consensus on resuming the parliamentary proceedings.

The Parliament-Secretariat had scheduled to hold the Prime Ministerial election at 11:00 am today.

After the main-opposition CPN-UML warned of obstructing the parliamentary business against the Election Commission's order to conduct re-polling in Bharatpur Metropolitan City-19, the House meeting was deferred till 3:00 pm.

Speaker Onsari Gharti Magar had immediately called a meeting with the top leaders to find a way out this afternoon.
