Major parties fail to agree on parliament operation regulation, ruling parties to register amendment proposal

Kathmandu, May 15: A meeting of the ruling parties and the major opposition Nepali Congress failed to reach the conclusion on the preparation of Legislature-Parliament operation regulation on Sunday.

Both sides did not budge from their stands leading the meeting inconclusive.

In the meeting held at Prime Minister's residence, Baluwatar, the ruling parties said the parliamentary hearing committee could have only 15 members as per the new constitution; while the opposition Nepali Congress maintained that the committee must have the same previous practice of the transition.

Chief Whip of the RPP-Nepal, Dilnath Giri, informed that as the meeting did not make any decision, the ruling parties were for registering the amendment proposal in the parliament.

According to him, the meeting urged Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli to hold talks with Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba to forge agreement on the regulation before May 26.

If the agreement was made during the talks, the writing of the regulation could be continued side by side.

Commenting that the ruling parties were tending to introduce the new provision in the parliamentary hearing special committee, Nepali Congress (NC) Chief Whip Chinkaji Shrestha stressed on formulation of a regulation based on consensus.
Shrestha argued that the provision to keep lesser number of members in the hearing committee was not logical as other committees in the parliament would be regulated as it is.
Furthermore, he pledged that the NC would move ahead sticking to the rules and regulations if the ruling parties are to reach a decision on a majority basis in this connection.
The political parties are facing a compulsion to settle on the regulation before the next meeting of Legislature-Parliament scheduled on May 26.
The appointment process of the Chief Justice in the Supreme Court and other constitutional bodies has not progressed for lack of the parliament operation regulation. The hearing on commissioners, ambassadors and judges has been further delayed.
Present in the meeting were Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Physical Infrastructure and Transport Bijay Kumar Gachchhadar and President of the major opposition party Nepali Congress Sher Bahadur Deuba.
Lack of consensus on regulation has further hindered the implementation of the new constitution which was promulgated on September 20, 2015.
