KATHMANDU: In a bid to convince the dissenting parties to bring on board for holding the elections of the constituent assembly, the High Level Political Committee (HLPC), the cross-party taskforce formed to support the Chief Justice led election government, held talks with CPN-Maoist led 33 party alliance on Wednesday. However the talks between both the sides ended inconclusively though both the sides termed the talks as positive.
Both the sides softened their stance in today’s meeting. Earlier the HLPC said it will not compromise on the resignation of the Chief Justice led government and deferring the elections date, while the poll opposing parties have been sticking to the demand of resignation of the Chief Justice led government and also demanding to defer the election date to address the concerns of all sides before holding the elections.
In today’s meeting leaders of HLPC have said that they may reconsider the Constituent Assembly election date slated for Nov 19 if the CPN-Maoist led 33-party alliance joins the election process. Similarly the CPN-Maoist led 33-party alliance has expressed commitments to join the Constituent Assembly polls if the major parties agree to defer the election date.
“Today’s talks was positive as the CPN-Maoist-led alliance was a little flexible,” said CPN-UML leader Raghujee Panta, emerging from the meeting. Similarly, Secretary of CPN-Maoist Dev Gurung said the talk was positive and the both sides agreed to meet further.
“We demanded to review the past political course and form a political party-led government for the elections,” Gurung told the media corps.
The 33-party alliance was insisting on dissolution of the present chief justice-led technocratic government and formation of an election government led and participated by political parties, and deferral of the election scheduled for November 19. On the other, the major parties had already turned down these two demands.
The HLPC has decided to hold decisive talks with all poll opposing parties by this week. They have decided to go for the elections even if the agitating parties do not come forward for the elections. The poll opposing parties have also held discussion with the government about the possibility of holding the elections of the constituent assembly.
