KATHMANDU: As the major political parties and the government have expedited preparations for the elections of the constituent assembly despite the threat of 33-party alliance to oppose the poll, the alliance of 33 poll opposing smaller parties has urged President Ram Baran Yadav to play an active role for conducting the round-table conference as demanded by the alliance.
A delegation of the alliance headed by CPN-Maoist secretary Dev Gurung called on the President at Shital Niwas and submitted a memorandum to this effect today. “We have requested the President to play an active role for organizing a round-table conference,” said Chaitanya Subba, chairman of Social Democratic Party, which was part of the delegation.
The delegation urged the President to play the role of facilitator for the conference for national consensus in capacity of the President. Talking to journalists, Gurung claimed that the front was compelled to announce the agitation programs after their demands were not addressed. The talks between four major political parties and the 33-party alliance failed after the latter continued to their stance of resignation of the Chief Justice led election government and deferring the elections of the constituent assembly.
According to Gurung, the President told the representatives of the delegation to hold discussions with the procedures and process to move ahead to resolve the crisis. Likewise, the President urged the leaders of the agitating parties to take part in the election and resolve the problems through talks by withdrawing all the agitation programs.
The 33 smaller parties have already announced protest programs boycotting the second Constituent Assembly elections, amid ‘hope’ expressed from Chief Election Commissioner Nil Kantha Uprety that they would not disrupt the polls.
The poll opposing parties have been facing pressure from different quarters at the national level and also from the International level to take part in the elections but they are seeking their face-saver to take part in the elections after the four major political parties rejected their demands.
The four major parties, who are flexible to their demands earlier, have decided not to fulfill their demands after the alliance remained adamant to the resignation of Chief Justice led government. Following long efforts and almost one year long political stalemate the four major parties have agreed to form the Chief Justice led government for holding the elections of the constituent assembly after they failed to pick consensus candidate from the political parties. The major parties however said that they are ready to incorporate dissenting parties on board if they agree to come on board by adjusting the election program.
