HLPC fails to resolve disputes of Electoral Ordinance; Pun suggest EC to announce poll soon


KATHMANDU: The High Level Political Committee (HLPC), the cross party task-force of NC, CPN-UML, UCPN-Maoist and UDMF formed to support the Chief Justice led government to function smoothly, has again failed to resolve disputed issues in a proposed ordinance related to election .

A meeting of the top political mechanism held in Baneshwor Sunday didn’t make any headway as the top leaders of major political parties couldn’t forge agreement on the provision of one percent threshold for seats under the proportional representation (PR) system in the upcoming Constituent Assembly election. This because the major political parties remained adamant on their respective stance regarding the electoral law, it is learnt.

While NC and CPN-UML remained adamant on the provision of threshold for the election, CA strength of 491 members and not allowing convicts to contest the election, while UCPN-Maoist and UDMF are against the idea of threshold, size of the new CA and qualification of candidates contesting the election.

The top leaders of four major political parties plan to meet again on Monday to try to resolve the disputed topics. The parties have agreed to hold the elections of the constituent assembly by June this year while forming Chief Justice led government, but they failed to agree on key electoral legislation for holding the election. Indecisiveness of the top leaders of the four major political parties forced for the demise of the constituent assembly without promulgating new constitution.

Meanwhile speaking at an interaction in the Capital on Sunday UCPN-Maoist leader Barshaman Pun has said that the election government should declare poll date based on 25-point precedential decree and 11-point pact reached among major political parties.

Leader Pun also clarified that his party has no objection on 491-member CA, adding that the representation ratio of Women, Dalits, indigenous nationalities (Janajatis) and Madhesi should be as per the earlier election law. He also mentioned that earlier the parties have reached into consensus that there should not be the system of threshold.

Nepali Congress and CPN-UML, two major constituencies of the four party alliance, have been demanding that the provision of threshold should be incorporated, which UCPN-Maoist and some other fringe parties have been protesting against the decision.
