Trishuli (Nuwakot), Sept. 10: Senior leader of the Nepali Congress and former prime minister, Sher Bahadur Deuba, has said parliamentary system was more appropriate than the presidential one. Reasoning this, he urged the Maoist parties to accept this system.
Inaugurating the district convention of Nepal Student Union at Bidur on Wednesday, senior leader Deuba said although the political parties had agreed on most of the issues on state restructuring, the UCPN (Maoist) was still not clear which system- presidential or parliamentary- to adopt. Maoist’s delay, he argued, was just wasting time. He further said all sides could be accommodated in the parliamentary system, so the Maoist parties need to adopt it.
Similarly, the senior leader said the Nepali Congress must be strong because only this party was believing in democratic values. On the occasion, central member Arjun Narsing KC said the State could be restructured based on identity and feasibility. “I urge the party leadership to opt the measures of taking decision from majority scheme to referendum if the consensus eludes on the disputed contents of the constitution,” he added.
