Kathmandu, Nov. 3: Different political and constitutional experts fear that the past malpractices would repeat in the second Constituent Assembly (CA).

They have expressed the possibility of revival of the similar characters and trends in the future as well, possibilities of playing game to form and topple the government, not to give space to the experts for the CA members, and repetition of the old structure in the CA.

Former Speaker Daman Nath Dhungana said, “The political parties have been repeating their mistakes instead of moving ahead by learning lesson from the past.”

The political parties that got a two-year mandate for writing constitution from the CA could not promulgate it even after four years, Dhungana said. They seem to be exercising for lengthening term of the next CA for four years again, he added.

Constitutional expert Dr. Surya Dhungel complained that the senior leaders of the political parties are trying to make their lawmakers rather than the experts representing the second CA.

The party’s rigid position on the forms of governance and federalism is another matter of concern, he added.

Political analyst Shyam Shrestha feels that the rigid position of the parties in their respective manifesto may make it difficult for them to come to a common ground tomorrow.

Likewise, Chairman of the dissolved Constituent Assembly Nilamber Acharya said it was not natural for the ideological differences seen inside the first constituent assembly to continue today as well.

Former Chief Election Commissioner Surya Prasad Shrestha expressed dissatisfaction over emphasis given on the quantity rather than the quality of the members of the new constituent assembly. RSS
