Parties seek another extension of deadline for consensus; Prez likely to grant third opportunity


KATHMANDU:
Yet again the major political parties have failed to meet the deadline to recommend the Prime Minister of national consensus as demanded by the President.
As the second deadline of seven days issued by the President has passed today, the parties couldn’t come to a consensus on national consensus including the leadership of government and other contentious issues.
A meeting of four major political forces- UCPN (Maoist), Nepali Congress, CPN (UML) and United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF) – as part of the last ditched effort also couldn’t yield any result. Instead, parties agree to request the President to extend the deadline for third time.
Earlier today, the meeting of FDRA, a ruling parties’ alliance, has ruled out any possibility of transferring government unless the opposition parties agree on package deal.
Following the request of the parties, President Dr Ram Baran Yadav is likely to provide another opportunity to forge the consensus by extending the deadline for third consecutive time.

Though the President had extended the deadline for second time on November 29 to recommend the PM candidate of consensus, such candidate has remained still elusive given to the disagreements among the ruling and opposition parties over the leadership of the government. The main ruling party Maoist has signaled to accept the Congress leadership with condition. The condition of agreement on the contents of new constitution to support the Congress President Sushil Koirala as the Prime Minister candidate has foiled the constitution building efforts.
