PM should quit to extend CA term: Nepal

KATHMANDU: Senior leader of CPN UML Madhav Kumar Nepal has rolled out Prime Minister’s resignation as the pre-condition to support the extension of the Constituent Assembly.

Speaking at the Reporters Club Nepal on Wednesday, Nepal said that his party would support the extension of the CA for one-month period, if all disputed issues are resolved within two days and PM quits after that.

“Disputed issues should be resolved within two days and should be ‘locked’, ruling out the possibility of reversal of agreement. A maximum of one months extension can be sought for the CA, if the PM steps down and secures the formation of another government,” Nepal said while claiming that ” the Maoists cannot be trusted in status quo.”

He clarified that the parties will not support the CA extension bill unless the PM steps down and creates basis for trusting the Maoists.

He revealed that the another agreement signed by the PM and Maoist Chairman agreeing that the PM will resign by May 20 at the least and May 23 at the most to pave way for the formation of national unity government.
“If the PM has a bit of morality, than he should step down and pave way for the formation of national unity government,” said Nepal on the occasion.

He accused the Maoist of using double standard in resolving disputes seen in the constitution writing process and pumping up ethnic agitation across the country and of hijacking other party’s lawmakers to push their agenda on federalism and other issues.
