Addressing a program in the Capital on Tuesday, Nepali Congress (NC) President Sushil Koirala has offered to amend the 11-point agreement and the 25-point Presidential decree if the CPN-Maoist expressed commitment to join the Constituent Assembly polls slated for November 19.
“We are ready to even amend the 11-point agreement and the 25-point Presidential decree if doing the same provides an outlet to the existing political crisis,” said Koirala, “But, Baidhya ji (Mohan Baidya) has to first assure that they come on board the election process.” Koirala, also the coordinator of the High Level Political Committee, informed that he was regularly in contact with the CPN-Maoist party in his bid to bring them on board the election process.
Koirala, who currently heads the High Level Political Committee of four major political parties formed to support the Chief Justice led election government, further said the four major parties are still holding discussions with the Baidya Maoists so as to bring them on board the election process. “Our efforts to convince them for elections will go on,” he added.
NC senior leader Deuba said a periodic election of the legislative body is a must to bring politics on the right track. He said the onus of enacting a new constitution lies on the second Constituent Assembly (CA) to be elected through the November 19 elections. “The first CA could not issue a new constitution. Now we have to achieve it through the second CA,” Deuba said.
Similarly, NC vice president Ram Chandra Poudel said the Baidya Maoists’ participation in the election can solve many political problems. “Unlike what the CPN-M thinks, it’s a fact that the Constituent Assembly is the only place through which, we will get a full-fledged constitution,” Poudel said.
The 33-party alliance has been opposing the proposed election of the constituent assembly opposing the Chief Justice led election government and proposed date for the election of the Constituent Assembly. However four major political parties have ruled out the possibility of fulfilling these demands and reiterating that they would sit for talks if they agree to take part in the November election under the Chief Justice led government.
