Kathmandu, Nov 9 (UNI) The proposals passed by the interim parliament on republic and proportional electoral system for CA polls would in no way threaten the unity of the seven political parties, the CPN-UML has claimed.
''The proposals were passed as part of the democratic process and they are not going to trouble the unity of the seven parties,'' the Himalayan Times quoted party General Secretary Madhav Kumar as saying.
Addressing a programme organised by the Tarai Free Justice Forum, he said the parliament had to pass the proposals to end the prevailing political crisis.
Mr Madhav Kumar said the proposals might have sent a message to the Nepali Congress to behave more seriously in the present political scenario.
He also said an immediate meeting of the seven parties to solve the political deadlock through discussion was needed.
He criticised the government for "sleeping" while the whole country is gripped by criminal activities.
According to the general secretary "The government has failed to show its presence in most parts of the country. The seven-party government had not been able to play its role in maintaining peace in this critical time," The political crises would not be resolved without the joint efforts of the parties concerned, he added.
