CEC Uprety confident for holding elections on November 19


CHITWAN: Despite opposition from 33-party alliance led by CPN-Maoist, Chief Election Commissioner Neel Kantha Uprety has said the Constituent Assembly (CA) elections will be held on the scheduled date to ensure the franchise of 12.5 million voters.

Speaking at a press meet in Chitwan, Upreti made it clear that the EC will not compromise on the date of CA polls as it is the responsibility of political parties to settle the disputed issues.

“The CA polls must be held on the slated date of November 19. The demands raised by the disgruntled 33 political parties have nothing to do with the Election Commission. It is for the major political parties and the government to resolve the issues of poll-opposing parties,” he added.

He appealed to major four parties to resolve the political crisis as it is up to the parties to successfully conduct the scheduled elections.

Similarly opening a two-day regional orientation program on Voter’s education, the Chief Election Commissioner Upreti has stressed the need of using simple language and methods for voter education. He suggested trainers be serious not to repeat the faults seen in the first CA. Some voters put double stamps on ballot paper for proportional system in the absence of proper knowledge of its use, he added.

He further said that although guaranteeing election security is the responsibility of the government, voters also should be motivated for so and this depends on the skill, capacity and knowledge of trainers.

District election officers from 14 districts including Kathmandu, Lalitpur, Bhaktapur, Sindhupalchowk,Dolakha, Sindhili, Rasuwa, Bhojpur and Solukhumbu , a resource person from each district education office, social subject teachers and one facilitator from each district development committees are attending the training.

The disgruntled parties are yet to register at the election commission. Earlier, the commission has urged the major political parties to reach into consensus by Mid August to allow sufficient time for the commission to do all necessary preparation for holding the elections in a free and fair manner.
