Will ensure a strong majority govt in Nepal: CPN-UML chief

The CPN-UML will work with the Nepali Congress to form a strong majority government in the country, party chief Jhala Nath Khanal said on Monday.



Kathmandu: The CPN-UML will work with the Nepali Congress to form a strong majority government in the country, party chief Jhala Nath Khanal said on Monday.

The new government will not be feeble and weak like the last one, the former premier assured a delegation of EU ambassadors during a meeting at his office here.

The CPN-UML is consulting with the Nepali Congress, which emerged the largest party in the November 19 Constituent Assembly polls, and other political parties to form a consensus government, he said.

"Nepali Congress, in the capacity of largest party, is expected to take the initiative in this respect," Khanal said.

He also appreciated the EU for its continued support to ensure a free and fair election in Nepal.

The Sushil Koirala-led Nepali Congress bagged 105 seats of the 240 directly elected seats in the polls but lacks a clear majority to form government on its own.

The CPN-UML was the second largest party with 91 seats followed by Prachanda`s UCPN-Maoist, which grabbed 26 seats in the 601-member Constituent Assembly.
