KATHMANDU: As the leaders of four major political parties and the government have been pointing fingers to each other for not announcing the date of the elections of the constituent assembly, the crucial talk between the two sides is underway at New Baneshwor in the Capital.
As major four political parties— UCPN-Maoist, Nepali Congress (NC), CPN-UML and United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF) have failed to forge uniform voice on one percent threshold provision and number of CA members, the government has failed to finalize electoral ordinances and announce polls date.
It is said that the meeting is likely to decide on some contentious issues of the electoral ordinance and announcing the date for the new election. However the chance is slim for the political parties reaching to any conclusion as they are yet to agree on threshold provision and the size of the new constituent assembly among others.
Four parties have blamed the government of not delivering its promise while the government has pointed the fingers towards the parties who have failed to sort the bitter standoff on the electoral laws.
A meeting of HLPC, the cross-party mechanism on Friday had decided to take stock of progress regarding polls to the Constituent Assembly (CA) with the government.
