Regmi says Govt. committed to hold elections by Nov.; Civil Society organizations organize separate program to mark the day


KATHMANDU: As the political parties have been negotiating for holding the elections of the constituent assembly by November this year and working hard to hammer out differences of the electoral legislation, chairperson of the interim election council Khil Raj Regmi said that the government was committed to hold the Constituent Assembly elections by the 3rd week of November.

Addressing a function organized at Tundikhel to mark the 6th Republic Day in Kathmandu, he said that the government was in consultations with the parties to resolve the differences on the proposed election ordinance and that the election date would be announced after a “favorable political situation” is created.

He also said that the government expected cooperation from the political parties and other stakeholders to create election atmosphere

However civil society organizations boycotted all the formal functions organized by the government. Rather they organized separate program to mark the day.

During the program organized by the Citizens´ Campaign for Nationality and Democracy of the Professional Alliance for Peace and Democracy (PAPAD), in New Baneshwor, today, the participating speakers stressed on the need of unity among the democratic and republican forces once again to protect nationality and democracy.

The PAPAD representatives organized the separate program to mark the Republic Day instead of participating in the program officially organized by the government at Tundikhel.

They suggested the need of holding election immediately for political stability and withdraw the decisions that were made against the public mandate and spirit of the democracy by the political leadership.

They complained that it has been a matter of worry to have the situation of marking Republican Day separately by the government, political parties, and the civil society within five years of the establishment of republican system.

The representatives of the civil society have opined that it was not possible to take the democratic system to its destination until the environment for a free and fair election was ensured, brought the guilty of the Rayamajhi Commission report to book, and end impunity from the country.
