Question Over Ceremonial President
Dev Gurung, a senior leader of Nepal’s largest party Communist Party of Nepal, also known as CPN-Maoist, today accused the newly elected first President Dr Ram Baran Yadav of violating the interim constitution by becoming active in government forming business. He said, “It is against the interim constitution for the ceremonial president to be active in forming the government.”
Gurung, who won the recent Constituent Assembly poll from two districts—Manang and Kaski—said that the people’s representative Constituent Assembly was the one to form the government and it was not the ceremonial president’s job to do so.
Like other Maoist leaders, he also repeated that some international power circles were involved in preventing Maoists from leading the new government.
