KATHMANDU: The Government has formally started dialogue with poll opposing 33-party alliance led by CPN-Maoist from Tuesday. The dialogue held between the government and the alliance ended inconclusively after the alliance proposed the government to defer the Constituent Assembly polls slated for November 19.
In the meeting held at Hotel Himalaya, Kupondole today, the 33-party alliance floated the 18-point proposal, which includes postponement of November 19 elections and resignation of the Chief Justice led government, before the government also. Last week, the alliance had forwarded the proposal, full of demands, to the High Level Political Committee (HLPC).
Home Minister Madhav Prasad Ghimire, Minister for Information and Communications Madhav Prasad Poudel and Health Minister Bidhyadhar Mallik represented the government side at the meeting. Likewise, CPN-Maoist leaders Dev Gurung, Hari Bhakta Kandel, and Chairman of the Nepal Communist Party-Revolutionary Mani Thapa, among other leaders, represented the agitating 33-party alliance. CPN-Maoist Chairman Mohan Baidya was, however, not present at the meeting.
The alliance has also proposed to scrap the ongoing election preparations and start a new process of government formation and election process.
Emerging from the meeting, CPN-Maoist Secretary Dev Gurung informed that the meeting was positive to forge an agreement as both the sides see no alternative to drafting new constitution and forming new government through elections.
“They proposed to start afresh by forging consensus on a party-led government and a new election process,” said government spokesperson Madhav Poudel. “We told them that the government is ready to hold talks on every other issue expect the deferral of slated CA polls,” he added. He also informed that the next round of talks will take place within couple of days.
