NC and UCPN-Maoist leaders for deferring the CA poll to incorporate dissenting parties


KATHMANDU: At a time when the leaders of four major political parties have decided to go for the elections of the constituent assembly even without participation from 33-political parties, leaders of Nepali Congress (NC) and UCPN-Maoist have stressed the need of deferring the election date for bring the dissenting parties on board of electoral process.

Speaking at an interaction in the Capital, NC Leader and former deputy prime minister Sujata Koirala said that deferring the poll dates should not be made an issue when it comes to convincing a major political force – CPN-Maoist and its allies – to take part in the elections.

“The CPN-Maoist must be brought onboard the election process in order to take ahead the peace process that began after the singing of the 12-point agreement. The elections must be deferred for the same,” she added.

The NC leader warned that the nation would plunge into a bloody confrontation if attempts were made to conduct the elections forcefully by mobilizing army. She opined that the president elected through a democratic process should become serious about this.

“Elections cannot ensure peace and stability as long as the CPN-Maoist-led political alliance continues to boycott the polls,” she said, adding that an election imposed through army mobilization could provoke violence and bloodshed in the country.

Speaking at the same program, UCPN-Maoist leader Top Bahadur Rayamajhi echoed Koirala stating that Regmi should not think twice before resigning at the interest of the country’s welfare.

He added that the government should create environment for talks by addressing demands raised by disgruntled political parties. In a different context, Rayamajhi claimed that his party would garner two-third majority in the forthcoming elections.

The talks between the High Level Political Committee, the cross-party taskforce of major political parties, and the government failed after the HLPC could not agree on the demands raised by dissenting parties resignation of the chairperson of the Interim Election Government from the post of Chief Justice and deferring the election date slated for November 19.
