The UCPN (Maoist) has concluded that there should be at least three major parties in the new government for the implementation of the constitution.
The the party’s office bearers meeting on Tuesday decided that if the formation of a national unity government is not possible the party should take the initiative to form a government that is represented by Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and UCPN (Maoist).
“There should be an agreement among Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and UCPN (Maoist) for the implementation of the constitution,” said Maoist leader Haribol Gajurel.
The first choice of the Maoists is forming a consensus government led by UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli.
UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal is in favour of officially extending support to Oli in the prime minister’s race, but other leaders in his party have refused to do so.
The main opposition has been saying that the main focus of the new government should be addressing the demands of the agitating groups, implementation of the constitution, starting the post-earthquake reconstruction project and combating corruption.
The meeting also concluded that immediate amendments should be made in the new constitution to address the demands of the agitating Madhesi and Tharu communities. Gajurel said if any of the big parties remain out in the next government it would be impossible to amend the constitution.
