KATHMANDU: The main opposition Nepali Congress has agreed to stand against Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’s proposal to win confidence from the parliament. PM Oli will be seeking a vote of confidence from the House of Representatives (HoR) on May 10.
A meeting of the NC party office bearers and former office-bearers that took place Tuesday at party President Sher Bahadur Deuba’s private residence in Budhanilkantha decided to make the PM’s efforts failure, said party joint-general secretary Dr Prakash Sharam Mahat. Accusing the government of trying to rule through ordinance by ignoring the parliament, NC has protested the government decision to bring seven ordinances including the one relating to the Constitutional Council. The President, on the recommendation of the Council of Ministers, on Tuesday issued seven ordinances.
Party President Deuba also issued a press statement Tuesday, expressing his concern over the government move to run the government through ordinance. The country’s President has summoned the Lower House session for May 10 as the Prime Minister considers necessary to show that he has the confidence from the HoR in accordance with the Article 100 (1) of the constitution
