Chitralekha Yadav to take over as Speaker in Nepal

Written by: Staff

Kathmandu, Apr 26: Taranath Ranabhat today resigned from his post as Speaker of Nepal's Pratinidhi Sabha, after the Nepali Congress (NC) -- the largest constituent of the Seven-Party Alliance-- expressed doubts about his suitability for the post.

Mr Ranabhat submitted his resignation to Deputy Speaker Chitralekha Yadav who will succeed him as the Speaker.

Highly placed sources in the NC told UNI that at the party's meeting last night, lack of confidence in Mr Bhat was expressed charging him with being close to King Gyanendra. However, no formal proposal was adopted, they added.
