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.
