KATHMANDU: As the four major political parties have been expediting preparations for the elections of the constituent assembly, Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal Chairman Kamal Thapa has reiterated that the president should play the role of a facilitator to create an environment conducive for the election and the participation of the dissenting political parties.
Speaking at a press meet organized in Biratnagar on Sunday, leader Thapa said the president should not remain a mute spectator when the major parties have failed to create favorable environment for the polls as he is the guardian of the Country.
The former Home Minister suggested that the issues which have remained contentious among the major parties should be addressed by referendum. Thapa added that the issues of forms of governance, secularism and ethnic federalism, should be decided by referendum. Thapa’s party has been claiming that the fate of monarchy and secular state should be decided by the referendum.
Chairman Thapa stressed on collaboration among all the nationalist forces saying that the country’s national independence and sovereignty was in serious crisis due to wrong political practices over the past seven years.
The staunch royalist of a pro-monarchist party said that the party will go to the upcoming election with constitutional monarchy, provincial administration and economic liberalism as features of its election manifesto.
He also criticized the top leaders of major political parties on heading to foreign visits, notably India, one after another when there remains just few months to the crucial election to the Constituent Assembly.
“They should spend as much time as possible among the people to create an enabling atmosphere for election than going on meaningless foreign visits,” Thapa, who was home minister during the short-lived royal regime, said, adding that because of this the sovereignty and nationality of the country are in serious crisis and that the wrong political exercise adopted by major political parties was to blame for this.
Meanwhile addressing another function in Dadeldhura on Sunday, leader of RPP-Nepal Keshar Bahadur Bista, has said that all political parties should participate in a roundtable conference demanded by the CPN-Maoist and resolve all the existing problems. Bista also claimed the election government should not make any appointments in the corporations.
