MJF Ganatantrik demands Regmi’s resignation from CJ; UML leader Nepal stresses for threshold


BIRATNAGAR: As the issue of resignation of the Chairperson of the Interim Election Government Khil Raj Regmi from the post of Chief Justice has increased the rift within Nepali Congress, Madhesi Janadhikar Forum-Ganatantrik also demanded that Regmi should resign from the post of Chief Justice to resolve current problems dogging the country.

Speaking at a press conference in Biratnagar on Wednesday, Chairperson of the party Raj Kishor Yadav said that Regmi, who is also the Chairperson of the Interim Council of Ministers, should be ready to sacrifice if his resignation as CJ helps in creating environment for the proposed Constituent Assembly (CA) election.

The former Minister said that there was no point in creating disputes over the issue of the number of CA members and the provision of ‘threshold’ under the proportional representation system as agreement was already reached among the parties on the same. He said that his party was on the favor of keeping the provision of ‘threshold’ in the electoral act, which he said, was necessary for institutionalizing Loktantra.

He went on to say that the incumbent government’s mandate will end if it fails to conduct the elections by November. Earlier UCPN-Maoist and some other political parties dismissed such demands saying that resignation of Regmi from the post of Chief Justice would push the country towards further crisis.

Meanwhile, speaking at a program in Bhimad area of Tanahu district former Prime Minister and senior leader of CPN-UML Madhav Kumar Nepal claimed that the provision of threshold for the proportional seats should be implemented during the upcoming elections of the constituent assembly at any cost.

He also informed that CPN-UML will not deviate from previous agreements on the issues of election like inclusion and threshold among others. He also blamed that UCPN-Maoist is trying to disrupt the political process by violating the agreements among major political parties.

He also made it clear that his party did not put forward any pre-condition for the elections of the constituent assembly and also recommended that it would be wise to take the disgruntled faction into confidence while holding the elections of the constituent assembly.
