Prime Minister and CPN (Maoist Centre) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal and main opposition CPN (UML)'s chair KP Sharma Oli have held a meeting today, focusing on the contemporary political affairs.
During the meeting that took place at the Singha Durbar-based office of Speaker Onsari Gharti, the two exchanged views on how to implement the schedule of the second round local level election fixed for June 14 and address the constitutional provision for bringing the budget on May 29 in the Nepali calendar, the date that falls in the midst of the two elections.
The meeting also focused on the issues whether to revise or postpone the constitutional deadline for announcing the budget, according to CPN (M C) leader Narayankaji Shrestha.
The main opposition showed its concern at the schedule of bringing the budget in the midst of two elections, he said, adding that a solution regarding this issue would be sought through discussions with all parties and sides concerned.
The meeting further touched on the issues relating to the constitution amendment proposal and the impeachment motion registered in the parliament against Chief Justice (now suspended)Sushila Karki.
Terming the impeachment against Karki 'wrong', UML chair Oli urged the ruling parties to roll it back.
Talking to media after the meeting, the main opposition leader said the amendment proposal was expected to be brought to the House for voting, but had not introduced yet. He said the party is ready to face it.
