KATHMANDU: As the four major political parties failed to forge consensus for the elections of the constituent assembly, foreign diplomats have increased their consultations with leaders of different political parties.
In this process British Ambassador to Nepal, Andy Sparkes, has called on Vice-Chairman of the UCPN-Maoist and former Prime Minister, Dr. Baburam Bhattarai, on Friday and discussed the current political situation and election of the constituent assembly.
During the meeting they held consultations on UCPN-Maoist´s role for the next Constituent Assembly election. During the talks, Dr. Bhattarai told Sparkes that the UCPN-Maoist had been working with its full efforts to hold the CA election within November and that his party had sought positive support from international community in this regard.
Meanwhile, Ambassador of the United States of America to Nepal, Peter Bodde, called on UCPN-Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal, at the latter’s residence at Lazimpat.
On the occasion, Ambassador Bodde enquired about the ongoing initiatives to finalize the disputed issues related to CA election.
Stating that there was no alternative to going for election, Dahal said that the major political parties including UCPN-Maoist have been trying their best to declare the date of CA election on consensus of all political parties.
Ambassador Bodde also made it clear that America is in favor of holding the elections of the constituent assembly at the earliest and added that they are ready to extend all possible helps for the CA poll. He was referring to the statement of vice chairperson of UCPN-Maoist and former Prime Minister Dr. Baburam Bhattarai, who said that the election was not taking place as foreign forces especially western forces are against the election. Bodde informed that the statement of Dr. Bhattarai is misleading and created confusion among general people.
