Statute today for sure: Parties
KATHMANDU: After hectic parleys, negotiations, and squabbling, big four political parties have eventually decided to promulgate the statute by the midnight leaving the unresolved issues afflicting the constitution-drafting process to the ‘transformed parliament.’
“We will issue the first draft the new statute today taking into consideration all the agreement reached among us so far,” said one of the negotiators seeking anonymity over phone.
“Unsettled issues will be handed over to the transformed parliament”
Now top guns of the UCPN-Maoist, the Nepali Congress (NC) the CPN-UML, and the United Demorcatic Madhesi Front (UDMF) have left Baluwatar and are heading to Constituent Assembly (CA) in Nayabaneshwor to brief the Constituent Assembly (CA) Chairman Subash Nembang of the decision and call the assembly.
They went to Nayabaneshwor without talking with reporters.
It has been also learnt that parties have inched closer to crave mixed federal states with identities, during the process of state restructuring.
The talks took the U-turn after the representatives Nepal Federation of Indigenous Nationalities (NEFIN) displayed maximum flexibility and budged from their earlier stance to federate the country on the basis of single identity.
