Kathmandu, Feb 3 (ANI) Nepal President Dr Ram Baran Yadav today met several experts on promulgation of ordinances.
Dr. Yadav, who has the right of putting an official stamp on the ordinances, met the Nepal Bar Association (NBA) Chairman Bishwakant Mainali, senior advocates Sindhunath Pyakurel, Purna Man Shakya, Shambhu Thapa and Badri Bahadur Karki at his office in Shital Niwas.
Dr. Yadav has intensified consultations in order to settle the ordinance row in an uncontroversial manner.
As per the interim constitution, the President can give an official stamp to the ordinances following the recommendation of cabinet, even when the regular House session has been adjourned.
The government decision to promulgate ordinances immediately after the adjournment of House session last week has been widely criticised by coalition and opposition parties.
Dr. Yadav is also scheduled to meet Vice President Parmananda Jha later today, Kantipur reported. (ANI)
