KATHMANDU: Speaker of the House of Representatives (HoR) Devraj Ghimire has said that the Constitution of Nepal is committed to preserving and promoting cohesiveness, solidarity, tolerance and goodwill amid our diverse cultures, society and ethnicity.

“This is our uniqueness as well as a symbol of social cohesiveness and peace,” he said while addressing the 146th Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) Assembly in Manama of Bahrain.

According to Speaker Ghimire, the Constitution of Nepal elucidates the perpetual values of our foreign policy and by adhering to the principles enshrined in the UN Charter, non-alignment, panchasheel, international law and norms of world peace, Nepal’s Constitution lays foundation of a balanced and independent foreign policy and diplomacy.

Ghimire said that the last three decades of Nepal’s political history is an example of how collective efforts of the major political forces ended the decade long armed conflict and established peace and added that Nepal’s Constitution embodies the principles of inclusiveness and guarantees the proportional representation and participation of all sections.

“Every human being wants to achieve their aspirations and realize their potentials. This is hard to accomplish without peace and broader cohesiveness,” he said.

According to him, strong inclusive democracy requires an environment where every individual and community can exercise their rights equitably with participatory system of governance.

“Thus, it is necessary to bring the deprived and under-privileged communities into the mainstream,” Speaker Ghimire added.
