Oli calls Congress to name its Prime Ministerial candidate


KATHMANDU: CPN-UML leader KP Sharma Oli has said that the Nepali Congress should immediately name its prime ministerial candidate for the leadership of the next government of consensus.

Speaking at a press meet organized by Press Chautari Nepal Bhaktapur chapter at his Balkot residence here on Wednesday, leader Oli said the Congress should not create obstacles to the formation of a national consensus government by not proposing the candidate for the post of the prime minister, owing to intra-party differences.

On the occasion leader Oli also expressed the readiness to lead the next government if the Congress does not want to assume the leadership. “If the Congress fails to agree on the candidate, I am ready to chip in provided my party and other parties support it,” he said.

He also went further to say that as patron of the constitution the President should take a constitutional step to oust the present government.

Reviving the constituent assembly for some days would be of no use when it failed to produce a constitution in four years, he said and added, “So we should seek a fresh mandate.”

Referring to his recent visit to neighbouring India, the UML leader said he shared with the Indian leaders about the latest political situation of Nepal and made it clear that a consensus government would be formed next.

Also speaking at the program, President of Youth Association Nepal Mahesh Basnet said the Association would intensify the anti-government protest programmes.

And throughout the protest, the Prime Minister and his cabinet members would be stopped from travelling in government-owned vehicles, he added. RSS
