UCPN-Maoist decides to exert pressure for polls; EU diplomats call for speedy electoral process


KATHMANDU: As the political parties have failed to forge consensus on some contentious issues of the electoral ordinance, the UCPN-Maoist has decided to exert pressure on the government to move the elections process ahead after declaring the poll date at the earliest as per the prior political agreements reached among the major political forces.

A meeting of the party’s office bearers held at party Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal’s personal residence, Lazimpat decided to pile pressure on the government for the purported elections to the Constituent Assembly (CA) forging the political consensus.

The central committee meeting of the party scheduled for tomorrow will decide to exert pressure to the government and parties to fix the poll date and forge the political consensus as per the 11-point agreement reached among four major political forces to form the chief justice-led government and 25-point presidential order to remove the constitutional difficulties.

Meanwhile, party Chairperson Dahal held discussion with President Dr. Ram Baran Yadav about current political stalemate of the country and also the election related issues.

Party Chairperson briefed the recent political developments and discussion held within the party to the President. President Dr. Yadav held discussion with CPN-UML chairperson and President of Nepali Congress about these issues.

Similarly, a delegation of European Union (EU) ambassador held consultation with UML chairperson and coordinator of the high-level political committee (HLPC), the cross-party taskforce of four major political parties including UCPN-Maoist, Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF) to assist the Chief Justice led election government, Jhala Nath Khanal at the UML headquarters, Balkhu, and called for speedy electoral process.

“The EU delegation expressed their unequivocal support for the swift electoral process in Nepal,” a press statement issued by Milan Tuhadhar, member of the UML’s International Department, said. The EU diplomats also said they were firmly behind the parties’ efforts to set early election date and urged Khanal to try to bring as many political forces on board as possible.

Khanal on his part said the issues raised by dissenting groups will be addressed after consensus within the HLPC. Ambassadors of Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, UK and EU delegation were present in the meeting.
