In view of the continuous obstruction of the Legislature-Parliament, the Parliament Secretariat has planned to initiate the election of the new Prime Minister from today after holding discussion at the meeting of the Proceedings Advisory Committee.
Earlier, President Bidya Devi Bhandari had urged the political parties to initiate the process of electing PM through majority votes at Parliament after the one week timeslot for election of the PM on consensus expired on Wednesday.
Although the Secretariat received the letter from President to begin the PM's election process with majority system, the process could not be initiated due to the obstruction by the major opposition CPN-UML.
Spokesperson at Secretariat, Dr Bharat Raj Gautam said that there is no any legal hindrance for the Parliament Secretariat to make public the notice relating to PM's election without informing the Legislature-Parliament. Speaker Onsari Gharti has called the meeting of the Advisory Committee today to discuss the PM's election.
The Secretariat has planned to make public the election schedule based on the agreement.
Yesterday's parliament meeting could take place as UML obstructed the Parliament citing Bharatpur incident- tearing of ballot paper-, the next meeting of the Parliament has been fixed for 4 June.
