KATHMANDU: After the failure of talks between the High Level Political Committee (HLPC), the cross-party taskforce of the major political parties, and poll opposing 33-party alliance ended inconclusively, the 33-party alliance, led by CPN-Maoist, has accused the chairman of interim election government, Khil Raj Regmi, of prolonging the ongoing political crisis by not giving up the post of Chief Justice.
The meeting of the 33-party alliance held at CPN-Maoist office concluded that the major political parties were not in favor of incorporating them for the CA poll.
The dissident parties decided not to take part in the forthcoming Constituent Assembly (CA) election at the existing state of affairs. The parties charged that the ‘political syndicate’ of four major parties, which they said is providing patronage to the ‘illegitimate’ Regmi-led government, is responsible for the failure of the talks between the alliance and the parties.
The parties decided to concentrate on the anti-poll activities. The parties will announce second round of more strict protest programs after the first round of protest concludes. The poll opposing parties have blamed the Khil Raj Regmi and India for not reaching into consensus.
Issuing a press statement, parties said the alliance could have been flexible in discussing on poll dates and their participation in the elections had four parties assured of Regmi’s resignation. “However, the four parties flatly rejected our demand, further eliminating the possibilities of the alliance’s participation in the elections,” the statement reads, demanding that the four major parties address all demands of the alliance at the soonest, pressing that the arrogance of major parties and Regmi is not taking the country anywhere.
According to parties, the CA elections would be meaningless without their participation. “Holding an election without the alliance would be a betrayal to the entire peace process,” the parties have warned, adding that a prolonged impasse may push the country back to violence once again.
Meanwhile, addressing a program in the Capital on Tuesday, CPN-Maoist Vice Chairman CP Gajurel warned that his party will kidnap the candidates of other parties and prevent them from filing their nominations if the Constituent Assembly election is held without its participation.
The dissident leader said that the election cannot happen if the candidacy nominations are halted. “We will take control of those who want to file nominations in the election. We will serve lentils and rice within in the closed doors,” Gajurel said.
The hardliner Maoist leader further said his party will launch a boycott campaign, which will be the first of its kind in Nepal’s history, to thwart the election. On a different note, leader Gajurel charged that the interim government is performing unilaterally though it was formed by the major political forces.
