Ambassadors of the UK and Germany and deputy chiefs of missions of the European Union, Denmark and Switzerland based in Kathmandu held a meeting with Chairperson of the Madheshi Janadhikar Forum Nepal Upendra Yadav on Thursday and urged his party to take part in forthcoming Constituent Assembly elections.
The foreign diplomats met Yadav at his party office at Bal Kumari and urged him not to boycott the elections, saying that the elections are the backbone of multi-party democracy.
In reply Chairperson Yadav said that the party is committed to take part in the CA elections. However, the major parties should address their key demands including dissolution of the High Level Political Committee.
Meanwhile, during his meeting with senior leader of Nepali Congress Sher Bahadur Deuba chairperson Yadav said that his party would participate in the election if the major parties agree to address their demands.
“We have never refused to participate in the polls. But there must be a favorable environment for our participation in the polls,” Yadav added.
During the meeting Deuba urged Yadav to participate in the polls keeping in view the need for promulgating the new statute to ensure political stability in the country.
Yadav demanded dissolution of the High Level Political Committee, equal number of seats under the First-Past-the-Post and Proportional Representation Electoral systems, delineation of election constituencies on the basis of the latest census and resignation of Chief Justice Khil Regmi as the chairperson of the Interim Election Government to create conducive environment for polls.
On the occasion, Deuba had told that the major parties, including NC were positive about all his demands, except the resignation of Regmi as the head of the government. Deuba had held a meeting with CPN-Maoist Chairman Mohan Baidya on Tuesday and Federal Socialist Party Chairman Ashok Rai on Wednesday in his attempt to bring the agitating parties on board the election process.
