Dahal to urge Oli’s UML to join new government in making

A new constitution is widely seen as crucial to ending the instability that has plagued Nepal since the end of a Maoist-led civil war in 2006 and settling the republic, nestled between regional powers India and China that jostle to woo a new geopolitical ally.

Kathmandu: Pushpa Kamal Dahal, chairman of the Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist Centre (CPN-MC), who is likely to become the next Prime Minister on Thursday said he is holding talks with the Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist( CPN-UML) leadership and would urge them to join the new government in the making.

Dahal said it was a natural political process in the parliamentary system to break and make governments.

“I will urge the UML leadership team to support me to form a national consensus government,” the Kathmandu Post quoted Dahal as saying.

Dahal has intensified consultations with the parties for the formation of national consensus government in a week, after President Bidhya Bhandari’s call for the formation of the same.

He added he would hold meetings with agitating Madhesi parties, who supported him in his bid to endorse the no-confidence motion against former Prime Minister K. P Sharma Oli. (ANI)
