Speaker to talk impasse with top leaders today
Dec 19, 2016-
Speaker Onasari Gharti has invited top leaders of three major parties for a meeting with on Monday to seek a way out of the impasse.
Press Advisor to Speaker Gharti, Babin Sharma said the meet has been scheduled for 11am before the Monday meeting of Parliament, which was postponed due to the dispute over putting the constitution amendment proposal on the parliamentary agenda.
Terming the proposal prepared by the governing coalition as “anti-national”, the opposition parties led by the CPN-UML have been obstructing the parliamentary business. The ruling Nepali Congress and the CPN (Maoist Centre), in a meeting with the leaders of the Madhesi Morcha, agreed on Saturday to press ahead with the amendment proposal even if the UML and small parties continue to obstruct Parliament.
