July 16, 2021, Kathmandu. Nepal Family Party stated that the handover of power by the Chairman of the CPN-UML and the outgoing Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli by accepting the decision of the Supreme Court has further strengthened Nepal’s democracy. Making the party’s official statement, Chairman Eknath Dhakal thanked the country’s largest political party for setting a good example of lasting peace and constitutional supremacy by implementing the court’s decision despite its disagreements.
Chairman Dhakal also suggested to the Prime Minister Sher BahadurDeuba and the political parties of the ruling coalition to move forward by reaching a broad agreement on the national issue of public importance. He further added, “The politics of revenge will upset the citizens and waste the precious time of the country. The family party also suggested that government should make a consensus on important issues such as “free vaccination to all citizens in time”, “immediate relief to victims of natural disasters”, “economic diplomacy focused on Nepal’s interest” and “guarantee of employment to youth”.
Considering the economic burden of the country, Mr. Dhakal suggested reaching an understanding between the major political parties of the country to hold the elections of the House of Representatives and the Provincial Assemblies together. He suggested the government to form a “National Economic Development Commission” comprising experts to uplift the Nepalese economy affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The chairman has also demanded the formation of a “Constitution Reform Recommendation Commission” to address the dis-satisfied group and reform the existing electoral system before the next election, including “directly elected executive”, “fully proportional parliament” to make the constitution universally acceptable.
