Confusion over govt expansion will be sorted soon: PM

imagePrime Minister Sushil Koirala has said that the uncertainty over the expansion of the cabinet would be resolved soon through dialogue.

Addressing a meeting of the Legislature-Parliament in the Capital today, PM Koirala said he would make consistent efforts for having maximum number of parties on board the government.

The prime minister reiterated to complete the task of constitution writing within a year as pledged during the Constituent Assembly (CA) polls.

Following the bickering of Nepali Congress and CPN-UML over the Home Ministry portfolio, the NC-led government has not been able to tale full shape even. A meeting of the NC Parliamentary Board that convened to pick ministers from the party and to chart out a policy on coalition politics had ended inconclusive ly earlier on the day.

PM Koirala also assured the House that the government’s policy and programmes would be brought once the government took full shape.

Clarifying on the controversy surrounding the seven-point directives which the president issued him last week, Koirala urged the lawmakers to take that as part of his regular meeting with the president and the latter’s concern on the contemporary issues.

The prime minister praised what he called the high culture of consensus seen in the House at the time of the election of the Chairman of the Constituent Assembly.

Promising to move ahead taking inspiration from the best wishes, the complaints and the criticisms the CA members have given him, Prime Minister Koirala said the government would give priority to issuing the constitution of the federal democratic republic and to development works while keeping transparency, good governance, accountability, peace and stability in mind.

The PM also pointed out the need of institutionalising the achievements of the democratic republic which was acquired as a result of different movements, revolutions and sacrifices undertaken at different times since 2007 B.S. for change and development.

He also extended gratitude to Khil Raj Regmi, the outgoing Chairman of the Council of Ministers, the Election Commission and others who conducted the CA election in a free, fair and peaceful manner.
