10 Unified Socialist lawmakers submit memorandum demanding Parliamentary Party meetingLawmakers, including four ministers, have expressed displeasure over the decision to change ministers.
As many as 10 CPN (Unified Socialist) lawmakers registered a memorandum at the party headquarters on Friday expressing displeasure over the party’s decision to change the ministers.
In the first week of June, the party had decided to recall four ministers but that decision has not been implemented yet.
Ten lawmakers, including four ministers from the party, have demanded an immediate meeting of the Parliamentary Party, saying the party has made an immature decision changing the ministers.
“We have registered a memorandum at party headquarters to discuss the party’s decision to recall the ministers,” Health Minister Birodh Khatiwada told the Post.
Along with Khatiwada, Urban Development Minister Ram Kumari Jhakri, Labor Minister Kisan Shrestha, Tourism Minister Prem Ale and lawmakers Krishnalal Maharjan, Nirudevai Jairu, Dhan Bahadur Budha, Pushpa Kumari Karna Kayastha, Binadevi Budhathoki and Gopal Bahadur Bam have signed the memorandum.
Submitting a letter to the party chair Madhav Kumar Nepal, the lawmakers said that the sudden change of ministers during the budget session was not a right decision.
They have also put forth some conditions for changing the ministers, including adherence to the principle of inclusivity.
