Meet on removal of Nepal king

The first Constituent Assembly meet scheduled to take place on May 28 is said to decide the proceedings to remove the monarchy.

A few weeks ago, Maoist leader Baburam Bhattarai said in a television interview that the king could be given economic, social and cultural rights and benefits - a "graceful exit" .

Meanwhile, chairman of the Rastriya Prajatantra Party Nepal Kamal Thapa has said the country might see serious consequences if monarchy is ended in a rush.

Talking to the press for the first time after the CA elections, the former Home Minister said the issue should be decided only after drafting a constitution (which will take two more years).

Mr. Thapa also said he met other political leaders including Maoist Chairman Prachanda and discussed the issue. He, however, did not disclose what Mr. Prachanda's response was.
