KATHMANDU: The Nepali Congress and CPN (UML) on Tuesday have rejected the UCPN (Maoist)’s proposal to form an election government under the leadership of sitting Chief Justice.
On Monday, major political parties had agreed to form the election government under the leadership of an independent figure, most likely the sitting Chief Justice, to hold the CA elections by May.
The UML took such decision by holding an emergency meeting of the central committee members available in the capital while the NC leaders aired their voices against the CJ-led government at the party meeting today.
The leaders stressed for searching for other option including forming a new government under the leadership of a political figure from within the party. “The NC even should be ready to quit its stance if the parties agree on to form the government under the leadership of the political figure,” the NC leaders told at the meeting.
NC senior leader Sher Bahadur Deuba also said that the leaders have been airing their voices against the CJ-led government.
