KATHMANDU: In a bid to convince the agitating political parties to take part in the election, the High Level Political Committee (HLPC), the cross-party taskforce of major political parties formed to support the Chief Justice led election government, held talks with Chairman of Madhesi Janadhikar Forum –Nepal (MJF-Nepal) Upendra Yadav on Tuesday.
At the meeting, the cross-party mechanism assured the dissenting Front of addressing some of their demands, including the increase of seats under the propositional representation system in the Constituent Assembly election and the round-table conference.
However, the meeting ended without reaching to a conclusion as both the sides stuck to their earlier stance regarding the dissolution of interim government HLPC, the delimitation constituencies based on the population and increasing the number of constituencies in Madhes.
It has been reported that the HLPC has agreed to reserve 95 per cent seats for proportional representation in the CA, disband the four-party syndicate, amend 25-point presidential decree issued on March 14 and extend the deadline for voter registration. Meanwhile, the next meeting has been called for Wednesday.
Talking to the media after the meeting, Parshuram Tamang, spokesperson of the Front, said the meeting ended after deciding to hold next round of talks on the key contentious issues tomorrow.
On Monday, the HLPC had decided to wrap up ongoing negotiations with the poll-opposing parties within this week. The HLPC has decided to go ahead for elections even if the dissenting parties do not come forward for polls. The Election Commission has urged the government and the political parties to find consensus by Mid August.
