Kathmandu, June 2
The Rastriya Prajatantra Party has demanded reforms to the country’s electoral system.
A meeting of the central working committee held in Dhulikhel on Thursday demanded a change in the form of government with a directly elected prime minister and reinstatement of the king in a ceremonial role.
“In order to end corruption and instability, we need change the current form of government,” says RPP Chairman Rajendra Lingden. “I feel it is time to reform the country’s electoral system and have a fully-proportional parliament, a directly elected executive prime minister and a king as the guardian of the institution.”
He also said that the party would only choose outstanding candidates even if they were not in the party for the forthcoming federal and provincial elections.
