KATHMANDU: One day after the High Level Political Mechanism, a cross-party taskforce of four major political parties, has decided to hold talks with the government to hold the elections of the constituent assembly, leaders of political parties have started to express different conditions for the talks.
Central committee member of Nepali Congress, Dr Shekhar Koirala has said that an environment conductive to election will be enabled only after the Chairperson of Interim Election Government resigned from the post of Chief Justice.
“Dialogue with parties´ leaders protesting the election including Mohan Baidhya, Upendra Yadav and indigenous nationalities leaders will take place in a meaningful way once the Chairperson resigned from the post of Chief Justice,” Dr Koirala said, adding that, “The Constituent Assembly (CA) election will take place on participation of all parties and a new constitution will also be framed.”
He also expressed his confidence that all the differences related with the election would be resolved immediately to create environment for the elections of the constituent assembly.
Meanwhile, addressing an interaction in the capital on Saturday, chairperson of CPN-UML Jhala Nath Khanal opined that an agreement among all the political parties for the Constituent Assembly elections is not possible.
Khanal, who is currently heading the High Level Political Committee of four political forces, said, “A complete political agreement among all parties is not possible as parties differ in views.” According to him, an agreement among the political parties that represent a majority should be considered as a national agreement.
A meeting of the HLPC on Friday evening had decided to take stocks of the progress that the government has made on the election relation matter. The HLPC is scheduled to meet IEC Chairman Khil Raj Regmi on Sunday morning. According to Khanal, the government would announce polls date soon after the IEC chairman consults with the HLPC. Commenting on the one percent threshold provision for the proportional representation, the bone of contention among major parties, Khanal claimed that the protest against the threshold provision is meaningless.
