RPP-N to stay outside govt

KATHMANDU, NOV 29-  Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal (RPP-N), which emerged as the fourth largest party in the Constituent Assembly (CA), has announced that it will not join the government.

RPP-N Chairman Kamal Thapa made such announcement during a press meet held at the party office in Dhumbarahi, Kathmandu on Friday.
“RPP-N will play the role of a positive, powerful and creative opposition at the parliament,” said Thapa, “Our party will completely shun the dirty power-centric competition.”
Thapa opined that the new faces should be appointed in the constitutional bodies including the office of President and Vice President in accordance with the fresh mandate. “A new consensus should be forged for appointment in constitutional bodies based on the new power equation,” said the RPP-N chairman.
RPP-N has put forth a proposal for appointment of 26 Constituent Assembly members to be nominated by Cabinet.
