HLPC once again could not forge consensus on contentious issues; Dahal asks Regmi to announce poll date soon


KATHMANDU: The meeting of the High Level Political Committee, the cross-party taskforce of major political parties UCPN-Maoist, Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF) formed to assist the Chief Justice led election government, ended inconclusively as the leaders of political parties remained adamant to their stances.

The political parties remained firm to their stances like whether to enforce one percent threshold for seats under proportional representation system, qualification of candidate and size of the new constituent assembly. Nepali Congress and CPN-UML have been standing firm to these provisions, while UCPN-Maoist and UDMF have been protesting these provisions.

As they failed to forge consensus the parties agreed to discuss the issue with the Chairperson of the Interim Election Council, Khil Raj Regmi, and request him to finalize the electoral ordinance in line with the past agreements among political parties.

Talking to journalists after the meeting CPN-UML Jhalnath Khanal, who is also the coordinator of the HLPC, informed that the discussion is moving towards positive discussion and they would find consensus soon. The leaders of major political parties have said that they would find consensus in today’s meeting at any cost.

Meanwhile, Chairperson of the UCPN-Maoist, Pushpa Kamal Dahal, has called on Chairman of the Interim Election Government, Khil Raj Regmi, at the latter’s official residence at Baluwatar on Friday and requested him to announce the date for the elections of the constituent assembly at the earliest.

On the occasion, Dahal informed Regmi about the talks held with fringe parties to announce the date for the election to the Constituent Assembly.

Dahal said that the consensus would probably be forged on all the disputed issues related to election in a meeting of the high-level political mechanism scheduled for today. Similarly, Chairman Regmi drew the attention of Dahal to reach a conclusion soon.
