KATHMANDU: The alliance of 33 three political parties led by the CPN-Maoist, which are protesting against the Chief Justice led government, have staged protest in front of the Election Commission (EC) against the ongoing election process including the registration of parties on Friday.
Cadres of the agitating parties gathered in front of the EC office at Kantipath and staged sit-in from 9 am to 11 am. They also blocked vehicular movement in and around Kantipath during the protest.
They have demanded that all the programs regarding the elections including the registration of political parties for the election should be postponed until the ordinance for removing obstacles issued by President Dr. Ram Baran Yadav was canceled.
The agitating political parties also demanded the exit of the Chairperson of the Interim Election Council and urged all to be united for national independence. They also demanded to end the existing four-party syndicate in national politics and demanded to find the way out for the current political stalemate by holding round-table conference among all the political forces.
Following the protest, the vehicles heading to different destinations through the area were disrupted and general people faced difficulties.
A meeting of the 33 parties earlier this week had decided not to register with the EC and continue the protest with the demand for withdrawal of the 25-point decree issued by the President to remove the constitutional constraints to form the Chief Justice-led government and the resignation of the current government. They have also opposed the ongoing voter registration and citizenship distribution.
The agitating parties have also rejected the talks offer of the government and claimed that they would not sit for talks until and unless the four political parties scrap the 11-point agreement which includes formation of the election government led by Chief Justice Khil Raj Regmi. However the four political parties have not made any serious action to convince the agitating political parties and ensure that the election takes place in November this year.
