The announcement, broadcast nationally, came a day after Mr. Deuba had recommended postponement of November's parliamentary elections by one year because of mounting Maoist violence.
``I have sacked the inefficient Prime Minister who recommended the dissolution of the House...
In order to maintain law and order and safeguard democratic values and spirit of the country, I have taken executive powers of the government and will form a cabinet within five days,'' the King said.
The monarch has been claiming the Shah dynasty has always respected the popular will and that he is committed to democratic values, norms and spirits.
Tonight, he also invited suggestions for forming a Cabinet which he said would consist of those who were not going to contest elections.
This is the first time that King has taken over the reigns of the country after the restoration of multi-party democracy in the Kingdom in 1990. UNI
