Nepali Congress rejects presidential system idea


Jun 9, 2018-

Nepali Congress (NC) senior leader Ram Chandra Paudel on Friday said that his party would not accept the executive presidential system.

Addressing the first general assembly of Province 4 in Bandipur on Tanahun on Friday, leader Paudel expressed his dissatisfaction and rejected Nepal Communist Party (NCP) Co-Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal suggestion that Nepal should adopt the directly elected executive presidential system.

He said that parliamentary system based on pluralism is appropriate for Nepal.

“Prachanda tries to trigger political debate by talking about the directly elected executive presidential system,” Paudel said, adding, “Political debate will stop the country from development.” Paudel warned that democracy would be at stake if the party with two-thirds majority talks about the directly elected executive presidential system.

Nepal has promulgated the best constitution; he said and stressed the need of taking the country on the path of prosperity by implementing the constitution. (PR)
