House of Representatives Meeting Adjourned Without Agreement on Inquiry Committee Formation

The meeting of the House of Representatives was adjourned today without reaching an agreement on the formation of a parliamentary inquiry committee. The meeting, which was initially called for 11 a.m., will now reconvene on May 19 at 11:00 a.m.

After separate discussions between the ruling party and opposition parties, the meeting was temporarily adjourned until 2 p.m. However, following a discussion between Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal and leaders of the opposition parties, the decision was made to adjourn the proceedings altogether.

The formation of the inquiry committee has been a contentious issue, with the ruling and opposition parties at loggerheads over its composition and mandate. The opposition has been insisting on a robust committee to investigate alleged irregularities during the previous government's tenure.

Speaking after the adjournment, Speaker Devraj Ghimire expressed confidence that the upcoming meeting on May 19 would be held in a cordial atmosphere. "I remain hopeful that all parties will come to the table with the spirit of cooperation and consensus," he stated.

The lack of progress has further deepened the political gridlock in the country, with key legislative agendas stalled due to the ongoing impasse. Political analysts have urged both sides to find a middle ground, emphasizing the importance of a functioning parliament for democratic governance.

As the nation awaits the reconvening of the House, all eyes will be on the negotiations between the ruling and opposition parties to break the deadlock over the inquiry committee's formation.
