Nonresidential Nepalis prefer executive presidential system in Nepal
Nepalis' overseas organization Non-Residential Nepalis (NRN) on Tuesday urged Nepal's political forces through the Constituent Assembly Chairperson Subhash Nemwang to adopt the executive presidential system in Nepal.
Handing over a letter with this request, Advisor of the organization Kul Chandra Gautam said that the executive presidential system in Nepal would be much better for the sake of Nepal's political stability.
Maoists, instrumental in mobilizing people against monarchy, have from the very beginning been demanding for the executive presidential system like in the United States of America. However, other major political parties, namely, the Nepali Congress and the UML, have stood for ceremonial presidential system.
The current ceremonial President Dr. Ram Baran Yadav re-appointed Army Chief Rookmangud Katwal who was sacked by the elected government headed by Maoist Supremo Prachanda, who resigned after all of the coalition partners in his government aligned with pro-Indian forces.
Ordinary Nepalis, who have learnt from their decades of experiences, strongly believe that no ceremonial head of state will ever remain ceremonial. They have a thirst for using active power. Therefore, better would be to adopt the executive presidential system in place of the existing Westministerial parliamentary system.
