Talks between HLPC and 33-party alliance ended inconclusively


KATHMANDU: Despite attempts of the Chief Justice led election government to convince the dissenting parties for holding the elections on November 19, the third round of talks between the government and the poll-opposing 33-party alliance failed to make headway on Monday.

The talks, which was slated Sunday, was deferred after the government had sought more days for internal preparations. The agitating parties have been demanding resignation of the Chief Justice led election government and deferring the elections of the constituent assembly, which the government and the Chief Justice led government have been opposing.

It has been learnt that the talks held today did not yield any result as the government’s bottom line of Constituent Assembly (CA) polls scheduled for November 19 was rejected by the 33-party alliance.

In the previous two meetings, the government talks team had expressed commitment to fulfill many of their demands if they agreed to take part in the November polls. Mohan Baidya-led CPN-Maoist, which spearheads the 33-party alliance , has been opposing the CA polls slated for November 19.

Even though the government and the HLPC have made repeated efforts to woo the party through several talks, the party has remained adamant about their demands which include the replacement of the incumbent Regmi-led government with a political one and the deferral of the slated November 19 polls.

The HLPC and the government have been reiterating to hold the CA poll on the stipulated time. The parties seem confident for November poll after the Upendra Yadav led Madheshi Front decided to take part in the elections after forging six-point deal with the government.
