2022 Feb 16, 13:33, Kathmandu

The US aid project Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) agreement has not been tabled in today's meeting of the House of Representatives.

Speaker Agni Sapkota has announced the decision not to include MCC in the agenda of today's Parliament sitting. Stating that there was no consensus among the parties, the Speaker decided not to put MCC on the agenda.

According to Dr Rojnath Pandey, Spokesperson of the Federal Parliament Secretariat, the proposal will not be tabled today after two votes were cast in the meeting of the Business Advisory Committee chaired by Speaker Agni Prasad Sapkota.

Leaders of the CPN (Maoist Center) and the CPN (Unified Socialists) had said that the decision should be taken keeping in view the past practice of not moving forward without the consent of the main opposition CPN (UML) on such national issues. He argued that democracy would be 'derailed' if the opposition was not taken into consideration.

On behalf of the Nepali Congress, Home Minister Bal Krishna Khand and Minister for Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Dilendra Prasad Badu and others had demanded that the proposal be tabled. The main opposition CPN (UML) was absent from the meeting.
