Prez reiterates need of consensus
President Dr Yadav said Nepali people’s desire of getting a new constitution through the Constituent Assembly could not be fulfilled as the political parties failed to forge a consensus on time.
Inaugurating a two-day international conference on legal issues amidst a program organized by the Nepal Bar Association (NBA) and Lawasia here today, he said that there was no alternative for the political parties to working together with ending current transition in the country to draft a new constitution as per the people’s aspirations.
“Independent judiciary and rule of law are the backbone of democracy and legal practitioners are social engineers”, the President added.
