Nepali PM meets CPN-M chairman
font size    

Nepali Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala and chairman of the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) (CPN-M) Prachanda held discussion on current political scenario and the probable date for constituent assembly (CA) elections on Monday morning, according to the website

During the meeting, chairman of CPN-M stressed that the interim parliament should declare Nepal a republic as early as possible.

However, Koirala reportedly denied Prachanda's proposal for such a step on the ground that the eight-party agreement was to include provisions in the interim constitution to remove the King by two-third majority of the interim parliament if he tries to disrupt the CA polls, according to the website source.

Prachanda also asked Koirala to reveal the government's position regarding the Election Commission's demand to defer the polls, and set a new date. In response, Koirala assured that new date would soon be set after consensus with eight-party leaders.

The Prime Minister also requested Prachanda to help warm up the deteriorating relations among the eight parties.
