All party meeting hosted by President Yadav fails to find consensus for Nov. poll; meeting to resume on Sunday


KATHMANDU: In a last ditch effort to bring the CPN-Maoist led 33-party alliance on board the election process, an all-party meeting called by President Ram Baran Yadav held discussion about the elections of the constituent assembly.

Top leaders of all major parties participated in the meeting. Vice president Parmananda Jha and Chairman of Interim Election Council Khil Raj Regmi also participated in the meeting. The meeting was organized after the leaders of poll opposing parties failed to agree to join the electoral process during the meeting held with High Level Political Committee and Interim Election Government.

It is said that Friday’s meeting ended in a positive note and similar meeting is likely to take place on Sunday to further discuss on the modalities. In the meeting, the CPN-Maoist, which has been protesting the November 19 polls along with its allies, reportedly proposed to postpone the election. The major parties, however, stuck to their stance that the election should be held on the scheduled day.

The major political parties have been saying that they will not compromise on the issue of deferring the November election and alternative to Chief Justice led election government. The proposed round-table conference postponed after both sides failed to hammer out differences on these two issues.

“The Baidya Maoists’ talks with the four major parties and the government have failed. Upendra Yadav and Ashok Rai have left the alliance of 33 smaller parties, deciding to participate in the polls. In such a situation, pressure is piling on CPN-Maoist to remain in the election process,” said a presidential source. The meeting was taken as an attempt to make face saver to poll opposing alliance to take part in the election as the major parties have decided to go ahead for poll even without participation from the 33-part alliance.

In a bid to press for their demands, the CPN-Maoist organized day long closure (bandh) on Thursday in Kathmandu valley and east Nepal. They have announced series of other protest programs including picketing the government’s key administrative offices and organizing mass meeting, among others.
