Minister for Information and Communications Sherdhan Rai has noted that the decision on removing difficulties was made to open up way for the formation of a new government after the no-trust motion as better understanding among the political parties was needed to bail the country out of transitional status.

At a face-to-face programme organized in Kathmandu today by Reporters Club Nepal,  he said UML will decide its stance based on the way the new government will move ahead, he further said.

Nepali Congress central member Ramesh Lekhak said there was no situation to enforce the power to remove difficulties clause when there were several avenues for the formation of a new government under Article 298 of the Constitution.

CPN (MC) leader Dev Prasad Gurung noted the proposal for power to remove difficulties despite having clear provisions on government change in the Article 298 of the Constitution and Parliament Rules has imparted a message that the same process should be adopted while changing any government.

Co-Chairperson of Sadbhavana Party Laxman Lal Karna said they could not understand why the power to remove difficulties was undertaken despite clear provisions on government change in Clause 49 of the Parliament Rules and also in the Constitution.
