Kathmandu, Dec 20 – CPN (UML) Chairman KP Sharma Oli has said that the ordinance on formation of the National Assembly recommended by the government to the President could not be issued since it is against the constitution.
Addressing a programme organized by the Left Alliance in the capital city today, UML Chairman Oli said that the ordinance could not be issued as the current government put the provision of single transferrable vote system bypassing parliamentary committee’s decision to form the national assembly through majority voting. “The ordinance could not be the means for any particular political party for power misuse. New government would be formed after the fresh mandate and the new government would submit the ordinance,” Oli said.
He also said that it is merely an illusion to say new government would not be formed without national assembly.
Expressing displeasure to the statement by the government spokesperson on Tuesday, Chairman Oli urged concerned all not to drag the President into controversy.
He also asked all not to harbour doubts on unification of left parties and political stability and prosperity. “Socialism-oriented new party would be formed with the unification of the UML and Maoist Centre. It is not swallowing one party by another,” Oli said.
Likewise, UML leader Madhav Kumar Nepal said that the Nepali Congress would suffer further if it delays in handing over power to the new government.
He added that an integrated community movement would be formed as the unification of the UML and Maoist Centre has already been approved by the people and party cadres.
Also speaking at the programme, Maoist Centre leader Narayankaji Shrestha ‘Prakash’ said that there would be no excuse on the way to prosperity as the communists have obtained majority in the parliament.
During the event, winners of left alliance from Kathmandu district in the House of Representatives and State Assembly were honoured. (RSS)
