CPN-UML leader doubts November poll; Information minister says Govt. will announce election date soon


KATHMANDU: At a time when speculations regarding the election of the Constituent Assembly (CA) have been rife, senior leader of the CPN-UML Madhav Kumar Nepal said on Saturday that even the November election may be deferred if fear-free atmosphere was not ensured on time.

Nepal’s statement came at a time when critics have been claiming that UCPN-Maoist chief Prachanda wants to reach to the helm of power after making the November election failure. Critics have also dubbed the Prachanda’s visit to China and India an attempt to get their green signal to reach to the power.

Leader Nepal opined that the incumbent government and the Election Commission should initiate preparations for contesting fair election of the CA. He also suggested the incumbent non-partisan government to act on their own discretion and not just act on the direction of the four big parties.

“It is not necessary that it should work as a shadow of the four big parties,” he said, adding that the Chairman of the Council of Ministers can avoid unnecessary demands of the political parties.

Meanwhile, Minister for Information and Communications Madhav Prasad Poudel informed that the government would announce the polls date soon as all the preparations for the Constituent Assembly (CA) elections were completed.

Speaking at a program in Sindhupalchowk on Saturday, Minister Poudel said this government would be irrelevant if elections were not conducted by mid-December, as this government was formed with the mandate of conducting the CA election s. Minister Poudel also hoped that all political parties would participate in the polls.
