Thapa for bringing poll opposing parties on board; Prachanda says CA poll will take part at any cost

KATHMANDU: As the four major political parties have been moving for the elections of the Constituent Assembly (CA) slated for November 19 even without participation from poll opposing 33-political parties, Chairperson of Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) Surya Bahadur Thapa has said that the government and the High Level Political Committee (HLPC) should make meaningful efforts to bring the CPN-Maoist into the election process.

Organizing a press conference in the Capital on Monday, Thapa said that holding the election sans the participation of the CPN-Maoist would not give good message. Thapa also urged the CPN-Maoist to participate in the CA election giving up all partisan interests.

“The CA election that is held without the participation of all political parties could not give outlet from the current political transition to the nation and question over the legacy to such election would be possibly raised,” he added.

Thapa, who is also the former prime minister, claimed that the efforts made to bring the CPN-Maoist and other poll opposing political parties into election process were not moved in positive and creative manner.

He also made it clear that he is not contesting the election due to his age and also to give opportunity to the youth generation in his party. Thapa said the RPP has already started the election campaign while stressing the need of holding the CA election in the slated time on the occasion.

Meanwhile, chairperson of UCPN-Maoist Pushpa Kamal Dahal has reiterated that the upcoming Constituent Assembly (CA) polls will be conducted under any circumstances, notwithstanding non-participation of some forces.

Talking to journalists at Bharatpur Airport Dahal asserted that country has already entered into the election process and there was no return from it. He also claimed that his party and the High Level Political Committee (HLPC) will continue to endeavor to bring the CPN-Maoist-led dissident parties on board the election until the last hours.

On a different note, Dahal revealed that he had proposed the CPN-Maoist for the unification of the two Maoist parties, and forging an election alliance. When asked about the recent preparation to deploy the Nepal Army in the election, the top Maoist leader said the army backing up other security agencies should not be an issue.
