Constituent Assembly Chairperson Subas Nembang on Monday urged the major political parties to immediately take steps to hold negotiations to forge consensus on disputed issues of the constitution.
Speaking to journalists at a tea reception held on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Federation of Nepali Journalists (FNJ), Nembang clarified the CA meeting scheduled for April 6 was summoned for sake of agreement.
He added the working schedule of the meeting had not yet been prepared while stressing the constitution drafting process would move ahead in line with prevailing regulations and practice in case of failure to reach a consensus.
"The party leaders must take the initiative to make the constitution an instrument of agreement in order to institutionalize the achievements of the past movements, and if agreement cannot be reached there must be an agreement on initiating the process," Nembang said. He also called on the journalists to play their role to help bring the warring leaders on a single platform reports RSS.
