Talks between HLPC and poll opposing 33-party alliance ended inconclusively

KATHMANDU: Despite high hopes that today’s meeting between the High Level Political Committee (HLPC) and 33-party alliance will forge consensus for ensuring the November poll with participation from all the political parties, leaders of HLPC and poll opposing parties failed to find consensus.

The meeting of the HLPC, the cross-party taskforce of major political parties, and 33-party alliance ended inconclusively as the alliance did not give up the demands for the resignation of Chairperson of Interim Election Government, Khil Raj Regmi and postponing elections to March/April from November 19.

The meeting could not make concrete decisions as both the sides stuck in their previous stance. During the meeting, the CPN Maoist-led 33-party alliance reiterated its previous stance that they would join the poll process if the Chairman of the Election Council Khil Raj Regmi had resigned from the Chief Justice.

Emerging from the meeting, CPN-Maoist leader Dev Gurung said, “We proposed Khil Raj Regmi must resign from the CJ post, and then only we can join the poll process. But the HLPC leaders informed us that Regmi was not ready to step down.”

“The CPN-M could not come to a compromise in regard to Mr Regmi’s resignation as chief justice. It is difficult for us to go for Mr Regmi’s resignation, as it misleads the whole electoral process,” said Nepali Congress leader Ram Chandra Poudel.

The first and second rounds of talks were held respectively on Friday and Sunday at President Yadav’s office at Shital Niwas. The talks were mainly focused on bringing the CPN-M chaired by Mohan Baidya and its alliance of smaller parties on board the election process. The poll opposing parties have been enforcing violent protest programs against the election, while the HLPC is trying to go ahead even if the poll opposing parties do not take place in the election.
