KATHMANDU: One day after the President requested the government to remove constitutional difficulties before taking decision to deploy the army for poll security, the government on Monday forwarded the ordinance regarding the removal of constitutional hurdle s for army deployment after making corrections to the President’s Office.
A Cabinet meeting made the corrections, as suggested by the President during his meeting with Interim Government Chairman Khil Raj Regmi, and forwarded the ordinance.
The President yesterday had refused to endorse the ordinance regarding Army deployment for the security during the upcoming CA election citing lack of ‘procedural insufficiency’. Article 145 (5) of the Interim Constitution bars the government from using NA without prior approval from the Parliament.
Earlier, the HLPC has formally directed the government to request the President to remove constitutional difficulties for mobilization of Nepal Army during November 19 Constituent Assembly election.
A meeting of the cross party mechanism led by four major political parties asked the government to forward another ordinance to President Ram Baran Yadav concerning invoking article 158 of the Interim Constitution to remove the constitutional hurdles in mobilization of Nepal Army for polls. The meeting also renewed its call to the poll-opposing 33-party alliance led by CPN-Maoist to participate in the upcoming elections.
The Integrated Security Plan approved by the government for the election has proposed deploying at least 61,000 army personnel, along with police, armed police and temporary police, to ensure free and fair elections of the second Constituent Assembly in November this year. The government is making strict security mechanism for the election amid threat from 33-party alliance to bring more strict action against the election. The poll opposing parties have been warning to take physical action against those involved in the electoral process.
