KATHMANDU, Dec 21: Lawmaker Prem Suwal from the Nepal Workers and Peasants Party has expressed concerns over the resumption of the parliament session amid obstructions by the main opposition party, CPN-UML.
Stating that Speaker of HoR Agni Prasad Sapkota had moved parliament ahead despite obstructions from the UML, Suwal said that such an act is against the tradition of parliament. He stressed that Speaker Sapkota could also pass the Millenium Challenge Corporation (MCC) agreement amid the obstructions. Suwal said that such an agreement is not in favor of the country.
“The resumption of parliament session amid obstruction is against the tradition. Dialogues should be held with the main opposition party by postponing the house sessions. A plan to pass MCC amid the obstructions could be made and we oppose that,” he said.
At the HoR meeting held today, two ordinances related to amending sexual violence, criminal offense, and other procedure acts were passed by Speaker Agni Prasad Sapkota. The two ordinances were tabled by Minister for Law, Justice, and Parliamentary Affairs Dilendra Prasad Badu.
