KATHMANDU: At a time when the decision of Constitutional Council to recommend former Chief Secretary Lokman Singh Karki has been receiving widespread criticism and many groups started protest programs demanding to block the appointment, chairperson of the Interim Election Council Khil Raj Regmi called on President Ram Baran Yadav at this residence in Shital Niwas on Tuesday morning to discuss issues related to filling of all vacant posts in key state bodies.
During the meeting, the Head of State told Regmi that all vacant posts in key state bodies need to be filled, as per prevailing laws, to ensure good governance.
President Yadav also reminded Regmi to prepare necessary laws to prepare for elections. The Interim government led by Regmi has failed to promulgate election related legislations.
Regmi conveyed to the President that the government was doing the needful to make appointments to constitutional bodies. He said that the government’s main focus has always been on holding elections.
Today’s meeting has been considered significant as the Constitutional Council headed by Regmi has recently recommended names of the chiefs in various constitution bodies including Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority.
Meanwhile talking to journalist in Butwal on Tuesday, chairperson of UCPN-Maoist Pushpa Kamal Dahal claimed that the President should endorse the recommendation of the Constitutional Council.
Dahal said that there was no point in criticizing former Chief Secretary Lokman Singh Karki ‘s recommendation as the head of Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) as the recommendation was as per the constitutional provision.
The former premier, who reached Butwal to attend a marriage reception said that the election will go ahead as the environment for the polls has already been created and that the election will not be affected from the resistance of few smaller parties.
