PM: Lack of clear vision prolonging political deadlock in Nepal

 -  Xinhua

Dec. 10 2007 -  Nepali Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala said Monday the current political deadlock continues as the political parties lack clear perspective and commitment.

Speaking at a program organized by the National Human Rights Commission in Kathmandu on the occasion of 59th Human Rights Day on Monday, Koirala said that Constituent Assembly (CA) elections should be the agenda of all the parties as the CA polls would resolve all the existing problems.

"Negotiations are still continuing, but the problems persisted due to lack of clear vision among the parties. The impasse could be ended within a minute if the parties become clear in their vision," he said.

Saying that the election was the only way out of the current political stalemate, he proposed a national-level conference of the major political parties to discuss the differences to go for the elections.

Hinting at the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist), the prime minister said that they were not clear of what kind of federalism and republic they wanted.

"What kind of republic are we striving for? Whatever we demand should be in the spirit of human rights and democracy," he added.

The United Nations Secretary General's Special Representative Ian Martin, the UN Resident Representative and Humanitarian Coordinator in Nepal Matthew Kahane, among others, were present at the program.

The International Human Rights Day is being celebrated Monday throughout the world to protest increasing violence, atrocities and crime against humanity.
