Election be taken as opportunity: RPP Chair Thapa
Jhapa, 21 February (2021) - Rastriya Prajatantra Party's central Chair Kamal Thapa has said the election was an appropriate means to find a way out to the existing crisis and it should be taken as an opportunity.
Speaking at a press meet organised by Media Nepal in Damak today, Chair Thapa was of the view that fresh people's mandate was the sole means to prevent the country from plunging into instability and the election should be welcomed as the occasion. '' All political parties should get prepared for the fresh poll.''
Though the Nepal Communist Party (NCP) has a two -thirds majority to run the government, the nation has been pushed into the constitutional crisis with the dissolution of the House of Representatives, according to the leader. "The country is likely to face growing crisis if the government failed to conduct the election on the announced date,'' Thapa expressed worry.
Chair Thapa went on to say though the constitution had granted the rights to dissolve the House of Representatives if a special circumstance emerged in regard with the government operation, it is not clear in the constitution whether the government with a two-thirds majority could entertain this right and this is the same reason behind the occurrence of existing deadlock. The RPP Chair said the matter was sub judice in the court and the court verdict would be acceptable for the party.
According him, the present federal system was economically costlier for the country and the restoration of a Hindu state with the constitutional monarchy was the alternative to this system.
