CJ-led government before SC’s verdict, Prachanda says

Puspa Kamal Dahal "Prachanda"

DHADING: UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda today said that the parties are expediting their steps to form an election government by March 7 under the leadership of sitting Chief Justice Khil Raj Regmi.

Earlier, President Dr Ram Baran Yadav had said that formation of the new government prior to Supreme Court’s verdict was unlikely.

Prachanda said the new government would be formed within one or two days by removing legal and constitutional hindrances to pave a way for the CJ-led government.

“Plans are afoot to handover government leadership of Khil Raj Regmi (CJ) within one/two days by removing hindrances,” Prachanda said at a program in Dhading today.

He also revealed that four major political parties have agreed in all nitty-gritty and only signing of the deal is left.
