REPUBLICA

KATHMANDU, Nov 4: A meeting of the 27 political parties on Thursday decided to extend the term of the high-level taskforce formed to resolve disputes in constitution writing process until November 11.

The leaders agreed to extend the deadline expressing satisfaction over the works accomplished so far by the taskforce. "We agreed to extend the deadline as the taskforce made satisfactory progress on the given task," UML Chief Whip Bhim Acharya told reporters after the meeting.

Presenting the report Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal, who is heads the seven-member taskforce, said they have so far resolved 39 out of the over 220 questionnaires. The 27-party mechanism formed the taskforce in a bid to resolve or narrow down differences over the contentious issues in the statute-drafting process.
Leaders said they will resume the meeting of the taskforce after November 14.

Similarly, the taskforce will not be able to continue its work for around a week starting November 20 due to the Maoist´s plenum.

Budget not before Nov 15

As Speaker Subas Nembang at the parliament meeting on Thursday announced the next House meeting on November 15, there is no possibility of bringing annual budget any time before that.

"This date was announced upon the recommendation of Business Advisory Committee and only after consulting Prime Minister Madhav Nepal and top leaders from the major political parties," said Speaker Nembang.

He said there is no possibility of House meeting prior to November 15.


The government can´t introduce the budget through ordinance since the parliament session is underway.
