Minister, commissioner pessimistic on holding CA elections on said date


KATHMANDU: At a time when the government is repeatedly expressing commitment to hold CA elections on November 22, a minister and the acting election commissioner has questioned the possibility.

Minister for Land Reforms and Management Chandra Dev Joshi has claimed that the election to the Constituent Assembly (CA) on November 22 was impossible until the Interim Constitution and Election Regulations were amended.

Speaking at a talk programme organized by Reporters’ Club on Thursday, Minister Joshi said that the CA election was not possible on slated time as nothing has been fixed including the size and type of the CA.

He, however, said that the government had no option but to declare the CA election after the automatic expiry of the CA on May 27.

Minister Joshi was of the opinion that consensus among the political parties was needed to hold the CA election. “Otherwise imagining the CA election on November 22 is worthless,” he added.

Speaking on the occasion, election commissioner Ayodhi Prasad Yadav said that the CA elections cannot be held if consensus between political parties is not reached soon.

Yadav said that the commission will take 120 days to complete all preparations for CA elections after political, legal, and technical impasses are resolved.
