deuba-oli-dahalBhaktapur / Dec 16: The CPN-UML chair and former Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has urged Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba to pave the way for formation of the new government.

Speaking with media persons at his residence at Balkot Saturday, chair Oli said that the Prime Minister should respect the recent public verdict and quit the government without any dilly-dallying.

He also objected the government’s exercise of appointing province chiefs.

Dahal calls on President

Meanwhile, CPN (Maoist Centre) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal called on President Bidya Devi Bhandari at President’s residence in Shital Niwas on Saturday.

The meeting focused on forming a new government and the National Assembly, and a consensus to be made among political parties in the context of the conclusion of the elections to the House of Representatives and State Assemblies, said President’s Chief Secretary Bheshraj Adhikari.

The meeting was a part of ongoing President’s efforts to hold discussions with leaders of major political parties on the latest political developments, he said.

On the occasion, Deuba congratulated Dahal on the success achieved by the left alliance in the recent elections to the House of Representatives and State Assemblies.
