Ruling coalition decides to scrap ordinance to expand Cabinet
KATHMANDU: The ruling coalition has reached an agreement to scrap the ordinance to amend the Political Parties Act to expand the Cabinet.
A meeting of the ruling coalition held at the PM’s official residence in Baluwatar on Sunday decided to scrap the ordinance before expanding the Cabinet.
During the meeting, Janata Samajbadi Party-Nepal demanded that the ordinance should be scrapped at the earliest.
As the Supreme Court on Friday had refused to issue an interim order on a writ petition against the CPN (Unified Socialist), the ruling coalition leaders said that it will be appropriate to scrap the ordinance.
A leader, who attended the meeting, said that the Cabinet will be expanded within a couple of days.
Nepali Congress President and Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba, CPN-Maoist Centre Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal, CPN (Unified Socialist) Chairman Madhav Kumar Nepal and Janata Samajbadi Party-Nepal Chairman Upendra Yadav were present in the meeting.
