NC asks Speaker to declare Paudel as PM

Nepali Congress (NC) has asked Speaker Subas Nembang to declare its prime ministerial candidate Ram Chandra Paudel as the new Prime Minister (PM) of the country in line with the verdict given by the Supreme Court on November 10.

A joint meeting of the party’s Central Working Committee and Parliamentary Committee held at Singha Durbar Sunday evening made a decision to this effect.

Talking to mediapersons after the meeting, NC parliamentary party spokesperson Nabindra Raj Joshi said they decided to ask the speaker to declare Paudel as PM in order to safeguard rule of law and resolve ongoing political deadlock surrounding prime ministerial election.

“We also appeal all parties and civil society members to support for the cause,” Joshi added.
