High level mechanism to monitor 5-point deal

The Parliament has stepped up preparations to constitute a panel to monitor the implementation of the five-point agreement signed by top leaders of three major parties ahead of the Constituent Assembly’s three-month term extension on Sunday.

It is learnt that the mechanism to be formed under the chairmanship of Speaker Subas Nemwang will have the representation of all political parties.

“The speaker has already taken initiatives in this connection and we are for endorsing the proposal when it will be tabled at the parliament meeting scheduled for June 3,” said Nepali Congress (NC) Chief Whip Laxman Ghimire.

Nembang said the parliament will try not to let the deal “go in vain.”

The mechanism will demand the working plan and roadmap of peace process and constitution writing with signatories of the five-point deal.

The leaders took the initiatives to form the body as the chiefs of three major political parties — Prime Minister Jhalanath Khanal from CPN-UML, Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal of UCPN (Maoist) and President Sushil Koirala of the NC — have made crucial commitments on peace process, constitution making and power sharing while signing the deal.

The top leaders have committed to complete within next three months the major tasks of the peace process and prepare the first draft of the constitution from the CA.
