KATHMANDU: Chairperson of CPN-UML Jhala Nath Khanal has said that there is no alternative to holding the second Constituent Assembly election on November 19, adding that only through election it is possible to end to the prolonged transitional period existing in the country.
Speaking at a program organized in the Capital on Friday, leader Khanal said that the country is going through a very difficult and challenging juncture as it braces for the second election to CA. He also directed the party’s publicity department to create an election environment favorable to the party so that it can garner the majority seats in the election.
He, however, stressed on the need to strengthen the party’s publicity strategy and make it more effective to create a favorable public opinion as well as image about the party.
Meanwhile, chairman of Federal Socialist Party (FSP), Ashok Rai, hoped that his party would emerge as a new force in the national politics after the November polls.
Speaking at an election run-up program in Besisahar, Lamjung on Friday, Rai predicted that the big parties would turn into pieces and the fringe parties would grow their size in the election. Rai announced that his party would contest from all 75 districts. According to him, the FSP already garnered people’s faith as it extended to 58 districts in 10 months of the establishment.
Stating that the Constituent Assembly (CA) election was inevitable to overcome the transition, he, however, said there was no guarantee that the constitution could be written by the CA. He reiterated that his party was in favour of ethnic identity-based federalism. “We still go with the stance that the nation should be divided into 14 provinces based on single ethnic identity,” Rai said.
In another incident, Nepali actress Rekha Thapa , who recently joined the UCPN-Maoist , would file her candidacy from Parsa district for the upcoming Constituent Assembly (CA) elections scheduled to be held in November 19.
Coordinator of the Revolutionary Journalists’ Association, Bhojpura State Committee, Govinda Devkota, said the meeting of the Madhes Bureau and Bhojpura State Committee that took place on Thursday consented to the candidacy of Thapa from Parsa constituency-1.
As per the decision of Bhojpura State Committee, Thapa will file her candidacy from Parsa constituency-1.
