CPN-UML candidate Subash Nembang has filed his candidacy for the post of Constituent Assembly (CA) chairman at the Legislature Parliament on Tuesday. UML parliamentary party leader KP Oli proposed Nembang’s candidacy while Nepali Congress leader Krishna Prasad Sitaula seconded the proposal. UML leader Nembang, who was also the chairman of the earlier CA, is all set to be elected as the chairman of the second CA with support from Nepali Congress, Rastriya Prajatantra Party and Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal. The Parliament Secretariat had provided time from 10 am to 2 pm today to file nomination for the post of CA chairman. Though UCPN (M) had claimed over the post of CA chairman arguing that they should get the portfolio in their capacity as the third largest party, the party did not file any nomination and has also decided to stay neutral during the election. Nembang is the sole candidate for the CA chairman post as no other nominations were filed at the Parliament Secretariat until 2 today. The Parliamentary election for CA chairman post has been scheduled for 5 pm today.
