CJ-led Cabinet official party proposal: Bogati

KATHMANDU, FEB 11 -

Newly elected General Secretary of UCPN (Maoist) Post Bahadur Bogati has clarified that it was the party’s decision to recommend the formation of an election government led by the chief justice.

However, the statement actually complicates the issue as UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal said on Saturday that it was not an authentic proposal. During an interaction organised by the Reporters’ Club in the Capital on Sunday, Bogati reiterated that it is the official decision of the party as the general convention organising committee had endorsed Dahal’s speech.

Citing that Bangladesh had set a precedent of the chief justice leading an election government, Bogati said the idea was for fairer election.

He said that the incumbent government was ready to quit if all the parties agreed on the proposal.
