Govt up in arms over Prez’s call


KATHMANDU:
The government has fiercely criticized the President’s move to call the political parties for the formation of national consensus government. A day after the ruling alliance, Federal Democratic Republic Alliance, condemned the President’s move terming it ‘unconstitutional and illegal’, Prime Minister Dr Baburam Bhattarai held an emergency meeting of the Council of the Minister on Sunday to officially oppose the move of Head of the State. The cabinet meeting termed the President’s move a ‘unconstitutional’. The meeting also decided to dispatch the letter to the President stating the government’s objection over his call. President could not use the executive power as per the interim constitution because it entrusted the executive power to the Council of Ministers, told Government Spokesperson and Minister for Information and Communication Raj Kishor Yadav to the media-persons after the cabinet meeting. He added, “The meeting of the Council of Ministers held on Sunday reached the conclusion that President’s call on the parties to recommend the name of prime minister was against the spirit of the Interim Constitution of Nepal 2063. The meeting also decided to inform the President about the decision through the Office of the President,”
He also claimed that President step to call the political parties for recommending the Prime Minister candidate was contradictory. “He had cited the same provision of the constitution to relieve the incumbent Prime Minister on the basis that the latter is no more the member of the Legislative parliament and calling the parties to recommend the candidate of the Prime Minister on the same provision is contradictory,” Spokesperson Yadav argued.
Moreover, Information Minister Yadav said present crisis could be coped with only after the Council of Ministers makes recommendation to the President about the prime minister after forging political consensus.
