KATHMANDU: Speaker Subas Chandra Nembang has put off the meeting of Legislature Parliament for seven days, stating that the political parties would be focusing on constitution-drafting to meet the Constituent Assembly’s work schedule. The next meeting has been set for September 10.
“As the Constituent Assembly’s Constitutional-Political Dialogue and Consensus Committee is mandated to settle the disputed issues by September 6 and forward the report to the CA’s full house, the parties are required to focus on constitution-drafting. The Parliament meeting has been put off for one week so that they could focus on CA’s work,” Nembang told mediapersons.
Before putting off the House, Nembang drew the government and political parties’ attention to settle their dispute and clear the House obstruction by the next meeting.
Earlier, opposition parties, including Unified CPN-Maoist, today continued to obstruct the functioning of the Legislature Parliament for the third consecutive day, demanding formation of high-level political committee to settle the contentious issues.
Before obstructing the House meeting, Sadbhawana Party leader Laxman Lal Karna, representing the agitating parties, addressed the House and said the Parliament could not function until the government implemented the four-point agreement of December 24. He said formation of the HLPC was imperative to address the contentious issues related to constitution and peace process.
Karna criticised the government for not abiding by the past agreements and commitments related to the implementation of the fiscal budget made at the Parliament. He also condemned the government for not distributing properly the relief among the flood victims.
