Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has said that he was eager to hand over power to the incoming government as soon as possible.

In a meeting with CPN (Maoist Centre) Chair and former Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal at the Prime Minister's official residence in Baluwatar this morning, Deuba stressed on the immediate endorsement of the bill relating to the National Assembly elections, currently at the Office of the President, according to Deuba's Coordinator Govinda Pariyar.

On the occasion, Deuba congratulated Dahal  on the success achieved by the left alliance in the recent election to the House of Representatives and State Assemblies.

In response, Dahal urged Deuba to make political and constitutional appointments only on the basis of an agreement among the three major political parties. Stating that the elections have given a new mandate, Dahal drew the attention of the Prime Minister against the political appointments including that of the State governors, according to Dahal's press aide Manahari Timilsena.

Likewise, Dahal also urged Prime Minister Deuba to take the initiative to hold a discussion among the major parties for a way out on the issue of the National Assembly elections. RSS
