KATHMANDU: The commission to recommend implementation of past accords has decided to suggest to the government to allow the Constituent Assembly decide some crucial political issues such as those related to identity and inclusion in connection with implementing past agreements reached with the agitating political groups over the past seven years.
The five-member commission under the chairmanship of former chief judge of the Appellate Court Keshav Mainali came up with the conclusion as many of the agreements that the government reached with the agitating groups contradict with each other.
“Past accords, including those on federalism and inclusion, reached between the government and the agitating groups contradict with each other. We have suggested to the government to allow the Constituent Assembly to decide such crucial issues,” Chairman of the Commission, Manali told Republica.
The commission has finalized the report and is preparing to forward it to Prime Minister Sushil Koirala very soon. The commission´s two-month term is expiring on Sunday.
In the report, the commission has suggested to the government to provide citizenship through either mother or father´s name, Mainali told. It has also suggested to the government to provide relief packages to the victims of Madhes movement and Janajati movements, among others.
The commission has also urged the government to forward the bill on inclusion to parliament. Similarly, it has also suggested to the government to adopt the mixed electoral system.
The government had signed agreements with 71 agitating groups in the course of the Madhes movement and Janajati movements after 2007, though the government has failed to implement these agreements.
The commission was formed two months ago to collect suggestions on implementing past accords reached with 71 agitating groups after the formation of the Ministry of Peace and Reconstruction.
