Major parties decide to go for election without 33-parties; President endorses election related ordinance


KATHMANDU: The major political parties have formally started the procedure for heading towards election of the Constituent Assembly (CA) slated for November 19 without participation of 33-party alliance led by CPN-Maoist headed by Mohan Baidya.

The parties decided to proceed for the poll even without participation from poll opposing parties as the talks between the major political parties and the poll opposing parties failed on Monday after the latter remained adamant to the stance of resignation of the Chief Justice led government and the deferring the elections of the constituent assembly. The major parties have agreed to postpone the election for some days but the poll opposing parties demanded for postponing the election for some months rather than for some days.

The major parties concluded that the poll opposing parties are not in favor of election and decided to go ahead for polls without them. Following the recommendation of the major political parties the government forwarded an ordinance to the president for removing constitutional difficulties to incorporate the agreements reached with different groups in the past. Tuesday’s cabinet approved the ordinance and forwarded it to the President for approval for amending the constitutional provision on CA strength increasing 491 to 601-member.

President Dr Ram Baran Yadav has endorsed the ordinance bill regarding the size of Constituent Assembly (CA) on Tuesday. With the endorsement of new ordinance, the size of the new CA will be 601 amending the earlier provision of 491-member CA. The ordinance has amended the 25-point Presidential decree issued earlier regarding the removal of the constitutional hurdle.

Earlier in the morning today, HLPC had urged Chairman of Interim Election Government Khil Raj Regmi to make legal arrangements to endorse the agreements forged with different political parties.

Despite failure of the talks between both the sides, both the sides have agreed to keep the doors for negotiation open and give continuity to talks. Even they hold the talks there is less chance of incorporating the dissenting parties for November 19 election as the Election Commission is running out of time for the November election.
