KATHMANDU, Dec 21: CPN (Unified Socialist) Chairman Madhav Kumar Nepal has claimed his party supports Speaker of the House of Representatives, Agni Prasad Sapkota, in connection with sorting out the current stalemate in parliament.

The main opposition party, CPN-UML has been obstructing the meetings of the lower house of the Federal Parliament since its previous session, citing the Speaker’s failure to issue notice of action it had taken against 14 of its lawmakers. 

He contended that those following the rule of law and accepting constitutional supremacy should accept the Supreme Court’s verdict.

"The UML Chair KP Oli cannot chide you the Speaker on this matter. You are not alone. We are with you. Move ahead with the parliament business with determination," Chairman Nepal said. 

He said they had revolted against the then UML and against the autocratic tendency of its leadership to salvage the communist movement, taking a courageous step to form the CPN (Unified Socialist). 

Chairman Nepal said that their party would move ahead toward building a prosperous and beautiful society by ending poverty and anomalies while internalizing the communist ideals and values at the same time establishing the party in the country's political edifice. 

Noting that 'Oligarchy' was seen in the place of the monarchy when UML Chairman Oli was the Prime Minister, former PM Nepal argued that the present five-party ruling alliance was against that Oligarchy and autocracy of a person.

Furthermore, he accused the UML of violating the constitutional and parliamentary decorum by obstructing parliament.
