NBT news reports on impending reform of Nepal’s monarchy - translated and summarized from Phujatkan, column: Rieng Na Ha Kradan, author: Kamnoon Sittisaman, April 21, 2008
The NBT television channel [Channel 11] has recently broadcast news
reports about proposed reforms to the Nepalese monarchy. The reports
suggest that the recent electoral success of the Nepalese Maoist Party
which leads to the abolition of the country’s monarchy. NBT’s
presentation of the story strongly highlights the issue of a monarchy
yielding to Maoism. I wish to criticize the PM Office Minister
Jakkrapob Penkair, who seems intent on presenting some underlying
significance that can link the anti-monarchy Nepalese stories to the
conflict between the pro-Thaksin group (who propose to reform the
Constitution) and the anti-Thaksin supporters of the Privy Council
President Prem Tinsulanonda.
