KATHMANDU: One day after the High Level Political Committee (HLPC), the cross-party task-force of four major political parties formed to assist the Chief Justice led government, held discussion with dissenting political parties for bringing them on board for holding the elections on November, Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal Chairman Kamal Thapa has said that an all-party conference after the dissolution of the four-party syndicate is the only means to end the existing political crisis.
Thapa also claimed that such conference would provide an outlet to the political crisis only if they were summoned under the initiatives of the President and the Chairman of the Interim Election Council. Thapa also said that dialogues and talks other than the ones summoned by either the President or the Prime Minister were useless and that they would not provide solution to the political crisis.
The former Home Minister added that the HLPC does not have any legal standing and went onto claim that the environment for the upcoming Constituent Assembly was not being created because of the ‘bad’ attitude of the four-party cross panel. He, however, added that the election to the second CA would be held on the scheduled date despite opposition from the disgruntled parties.
Meanwhile talking to journalists at Biratnagar Airport, Chairman of the Madhesi Janadhikar Forum Democratic Bijay Kumar Gachchhadar, has expressed the belief that the existing political problems of the country would be resolved within a week.
Gachchhadar claimed that the election to the Constituent Assembly (CA) would be held on the stipulated date on November 19 as discussions with the dissenting parties were underway. He also claimed that the dissenting parties including the CPN-Maoist, the Federal Socialist Party, among others, would participate in the CA election as the HLPC has been holding talks with their leaders including Mohan Baidya, Ashok Rai and Upendra Yadav.
The MJF-Democratic Chairman said that there was a possibility of re-updating of voters´ list for the election, and claimed that the number of seats towards proportional would be increased after the report of the Constituency Delineation Commission.
