President holds discussion with Koirala about poll; Bijukchhe recommends for 100-member CA


KATHMANDU: As the leaders of major political parties failed to forge consensus on the provisions of the electoral legislation, President Dr. Ram Baran Yadav has intensified consultations with the leaders of the major political parties in a bid to bridge gap between them and find consensus for holding the elections of the constituent Assembly at the earliest.

President Yadav, who met Chairperson of CPN-UML on Tuesday, met Nepali Congress President Sushil Koirala at his residence in Sheetal Niwas on Wednesday and discussed about the current political situation including the possibility of holding election by November this year as agreed earlier.

They held discussions on the declaration of the date of the Constituent Assembly election and possible ways of bringing the dissenting parties on board of the election process.

Koirala urged the President to take initiatives to bring the disgruntled parties on the election process. The high level political committee, the cross-party mechanism of four major political parties, failed to reach to the agitating groups and convince them to take part in the elections.

In response, President Yadav said that discussions and consultations were underway to woo the poll-opposing parties and thereby ensure the elections. The President also suggested Koirala to forge consensus among the parties at the earliest.

Meanwhile, chairperson of Nepal Workers and Peasant Party (NPPP) Narayan Man Bijukchhe alleged that the government failed to announce the date for elections of the constituent assembly due to foreign forces.

Speaking at an interaction on Wednesday, Bijukchhe informed that once the foreign forces feel that the time is suitable for them then the government will announce date for the elections. He added that the provision of enforcing threshold would not be possible as it limits representation of small political parties in the constituent assembly. He however suggested that the number of seats should be as per the pocket of the country. He recommended that new CA should not be more than 100 members. He also blamed that UCPN-Maoist wants to reach to the helm of power after removing Chief Justice Khil Raj Regmi.
