KATHMANDU, Feb. 21(Xinhua) -- Nepal's second largest party CPN- UML has said that President Ram Baran Yadav is crossing the constitutional limits by giving directives to the government.
President Yadav had issued a seven-point directive to Prime Minister Sushil Koirala one week ago prescribing some tasks to the government. Speaking at the Parliament on Friday, CPN-UML Secretary Bishnu Poudel said the seven point directive issued by President Yadav is unconstitutional.
"PM should reject such directive because constitutional head of the state does not have authority to give direction to executive head," Poudel said in the Parliament. He also said that the Parliament should ask PM Koirala to refuse the president's directives.
The second largest party which is refusing to join the government is also demanding that a proposal be tabled in the parliament about endorsing the terms of president and vice- president. Though UML supported PM Koirala in the parliament, it is refusing to join the government over a dispute over ministry.
The UML is saying that the prime minister's party Nepali Congress is not honest in implementing the agreement reached with them before the government is formed.
