The ruling partner Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) is to use ‘democracy with the king’ in its election manifesto.
Party spokesman Bhuwan Pathak said the party was going to include the constitutional monarchy in the form of ‘change with continuity’ in its manifesto that it is preparing in view of the House of Representatives and State Assembly elections due on November 26 and December 7 this year.
Pathak said the party leaders and cadres have suggested that the party should state the principle of monarchy as its conceptual views in the election manifesto that is in the process of preparation.
Reinstating Nepal as a Hindu nation has also been prioritized in the manifesto, Pathak said, adding that the party had since its inception adopted Nepal as a Hindu, unitary state with the constitutional monarchy as its long-term tactical line.
According to him, the party’s election manifesto will also prioritize economic liberalism with the policy of making the production and the distribution system accessible to all the people in a just manner.
Likewise, Pathak said the party’s election manifesto will prioritize the need for the state to provide special protection to the backward areas and marginalized classes and for the respect of individual freedom and right to property.
