The major political parties are yet to initiate concrete action to bring all the dissenting groups in the talks to ensure timely election. The government and the Election Commission are quiet active to hold the election on November but the political parties remained static for the elections.
Meanwhile, Election Commissioner Dr Ram Bhakta Thakur has made it clear that the Election Commission is capable of holding the Constituent Assembly elections on November 19.
He also made it clear that the Commission is carrying out all the preparations taking into consideration the November 19 date for holding the elections and is capable of holding the election on the same date in a free and fair manner.
Citing technical reasons, he, however, said tha the EC will not be able to use Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) in the coming polls. According to him, the EC was preparing to use the EVM system taking into consideration the number of political parties registered in the previous elections. But the system could not be taken up this time owing to the overwhelming number of parties registered for the November 19 election, he said. As many as 139 parties have been registered to the EC. In the 2008 election, there were only 80 parties.
