CPN-UML: If consensus eludes, let’s go for vote
Sep 10, 2014-
The CPN-UML has proposed that the key disputed issues of the constitution writing should be settled through voting process, if the major political parties fail to reach consensus. UML leaders said on Wednesday that the thorny subjects should be put to the vote in the Constituent Assembly in case the parties could not reach consensus.
“We have no alternative but to go for regular procedure (voting) to resolve unsettled issues for timely constitution,” said UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli.
UML’s idea on resolving the disputed issues differ from that of the opposition parties and a section of the ruling Nepali Congress leaders, who are for seeking consensus at any cost.
UML has also accused that the decision of the major opposition, UCPN (Maoist), to form Federal Republic Alliance with other opposition parties, and its demand for setting up High-level Political Mechanism were aimed at delaying the constitution writing process.
