KATHMANDU: Coinciding the announcement of new date for holding the elections of the constituent assembly, the 41 political parties have expressed serious reservation over the preparations being made by the major four parties to announce the date for Constituent Assembly (CA) elections without consulting them.
The alliance of 33 political parties led by the CPN-Maoist and the Federal Democratic Alliance, another front comprising Federal Socialist Party and Madhesi Janadhikar Forum-Nepal, have warned of launching agitation if the government announce the date for Constituent Assembly (CA) elections.
“We have strong reservations over the preparations to announce election date by avoiding us,” said the dissenting leaders at a joint press conference organized in the Capital on Thursday. The dissident political parties have demanded the major parties to announce the election date by addressing the demands of the agitating parties.
The parties have been agitating ever since the formation of Interim Election Government under sitting Chief Justice Khil Raj Regmi. They have been demanding for the formation of a partisan government to conduct the CA elections. Similarly, they have been demanding to conduct the round-table conference involving all the political parties for resolving all the problems dogging the country.
The agitating parties did not register at the Election Commission for the purpose of contesting the election of the constituent assembly.
Addressing at a press conference this afternoon, Mohan Baidhya, the chairman of CPN-Maoist, a principal force in the alliance, demanded that the ongoing procedure for CA elections be immediately stopped. He warned that elections would be impossible if the government act unilaterally.
Along with the CPN Maoist, the FSP and the Upendra Yada-led Madhesi Janaadhikar Forum, among other disgruntled parties, make up the 41-party alliance that has been pressing for replacement of the incumbent Khil Raj Regmi-led government with a new government under political leadership.
