Parties agree to use voting and dialogue to resolve disputes
KATHMANDU: After repeated failures to resolve disputes seen in state restructuring and forms of governance, the Dispute Resolution Sub-committee has decided to resolve those issues through majority voting and political dissuasions simultaneously.
If the disputes fail to cater clear majority for and against it, than the issue will be again forwarded to the constitutional committee for further discussions at the political level.
In Tuesdays meeting, parties have agreed to make this provision. Prior to this CA regulations were not clear on next procedures to be opted if any issue fail to garner majority.
“There was no provision on what should be done if any disputes is not resolved through majority. Now we have agreed to send it to CC for discussions,” said NC leader Ram Chandra Paudel.
Lead parties, which earlier claimed that they were nearing consensus on the outstanding issues, have in the recent days lost the spirit after the formation of national consensus government cropped up in their discussions.
However Maoist chairman Prachanda downplayed the issue, and claimed that it was natural to have disputes in such important issues and expressed hope to resolve them soon.
The House session will be held at 1 this afternoon.
Meanwhile, a meeting of three major political parties and Samyukta Loktantrik Madhesi Morcha (SLMM) is scheduled for 5 this evening.
