‘Prez should give new PM’

MYAGDI: CPN-UML Vice-chair Bidya Devi Bhandari has said the President should nominate a Prime Minister by replacing incumbent Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai to resolve the ongoing political stalemate.

The Vice-chairwoman of the agitating opponent party ruled out the chances of consensus in the present circumstances sans Prime Minister Dr Bhattarai’s replacement from the power.

The President can oust the Prime Minister as the patron of the constitution and a guardian of the nation, she argued at a press meet in Beni.

Like other opponent leaders, she also said that fresh CA election during this government’s tenure was a far cry.
