Nepal's first president to be elected on July 19
Kathmandu, July 15 (ANI): The Nepal Constituent Assembly (CA) today fixed July 19 as the date for election of the first president of republican Nepal.
During a meeting here, the Constituent Assembly working consultation committee decided the date for the election.
The Constituent Assembly decision comes at a time when major parties have failed to arrive at a consensus on the presidential candidate despite holding series of discussions.
Earlier, a meeting between leaders of the Maoist and the CPN (UML) over the issue ended inconclusively after the UML leaders claimed the presidential post for party's former General Secretary Madhav Kumar Nepal.
The Maoist urged the UML not to stick to an individual, but to forge a consensus in forming a new government and to elect the first president of the nation, Nepalnews reported. (ANI)
