Kathmandu, June 1:

Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala has assured former speaker Subas Chandra Nembang that the current political complexities would be resolved by June 5 when the second

meeting of the newly formed CA begins.

Nembang met PM Koirala at the latter’s official residence in Baluwatar this morning and discussed contemporary political issues, including the process to form the next government, elect the president and nominate 26 more people to the Constituent Assembly.

Nembang said he told the PM that major political parties were resorting to blame-game and the PM should play a proactive role to difuse political tension.

“The PM assured me that he will resolve political complexities by June 5. I found him very positive and hope that things will change for better soon,” Nembang told this daily.

Asked If the PM expressed his desire to become the first president, he said, “The PM did not say anything about that. He only said all issues can be resolved through talks.”

The council of ministers has not been able to appoint 26 members to the CA due to the lack of consensus among the political parties. According to the interim constitution, the cabinet is mandated to appoint 26 members from left-out Janajati communities and from the civil society. The Federation of Indigenous Nationalities has expressed resentment over the parties’ bid to share the 26 seats by sidelining Janajati representatives and popular personalities.

Nembang, who has been playing the role of a facilitator between left-out Janajati communities and the government, said the stakeholders had intensified the dialogue on the issue and an understanding could soon be reached.
