Five small parties walk out of CA meeting

Five fringe political parties walked out of the Constituent Assembly (CA) meeting on Friday accusing the major political forces of breaching the constitutional provisions and CA procedures on the pretext of producing new constitution through fast-track process.

They also blamed the major political forces that while inking the 16-point deal on state restructuring, the latter violated the agreements reached with Madhes-based political parties and indigenous communities in 2008.

Madhesi People's Rights Forum-Nepal (MPRF-N), Tarai-Madhes Democratic Party (TMDP), Sadbhavana Party (SP), Federal Socialist Party-Nepal (FSP-N) and Tarai-Madhesh Sadbhavana Party (TMSP) walked out of the meeting after MPRF-N Chairman Upendra Yadav addressed the House and announced the five parties' joint decision not to participate in the "process carried out in contravention with the related constitutional provision."

The five parties' protest, however, is insufficient to exert pressure on the major parties' decision to produce new constitution through fast-track process as the fringe parties altogether have only 35 seats in the 601-member CA.
