KATHMANDU: Ending the speculation of the general people that the leaders would fulfill their promise and agree on some of the contentious issues of the electoral alliance, a meeting of the High Level Political Committee, the cross-party task force of major parties UCPN-Maoist, Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and UDMF formed to assist the CJ led election government, convened to seek consensus on the contentious issues of the electoral laws ended without making headway.
The cross-party committee meet ended inconclusively as the parties stuck to their guns as usual, UML leader Raghuji Panta informed.
He added that the next meeting has been called for Monday afternoon. “The parties will hold internal discussions before the meeting,” he added.
Similarly, vice chairperson of Nepali Congress Ram Chandra Poudel informed that tomorrow’s meeting would decide whether it is possible to reach into consensus or not. He informed that the stance of all the political parties is responsible for indecisiveness about the electoral alliance.
The parties are sharply divided on the provision of a minimum threshold in the CA seats and whether or not to allow those convicted of criminal charges from contesting the elections. The UCPN-Maoist, Madhesi and small parties want the provisions removed completely to make the upcoming CA elections more “inclusive” but the Nepali Congress and CPN-UML have been pitching for keeping the provision in the CA Member ordinance.
The election government has expressed strong reservation over the delay of four political parties to reach into consensus on the electoral legislation, which has been hindering the process of expediting work for the poll.
