KATHMANDU: As 42 political parties have been opposing the electoral process, vice-Chairman of the CPN-UML Bamdev Gautam has expressed his confidence that the fresh Constituent Assembly elections will take place on November 19 at any cost, despite protest from a section of political parties.
“One has to face the people if one goes against the elections. Regimes have fallen when people have risen up” Gautam added. He opined that the country’s existence is in danger and added that any opposition to the elections would be an ‘anti-nationalist’ idea.
He also asked the government to tackle the forces opposing the elections by any means as election is a must to take the derailed democracy back in track. He also expressed confidence that elections would take place on the stipulated date even if the Baidya-led CPN-Maoist and Upendra Yadav-led Madheshi People´s Rights Forum boycott the elections. He further added the parties who boycott the elections would be accountable for their own choice.
Meanwhile Nepali Congress (NC) President Sushil Koirala has directed the party cadres to devote themselves fully for the upcoming CA elections.
Addressing the party cadres in Janakpur on Tuesday, President Koirala said that the NC has a huge responsibility upon its shoulders and directed the cadres to dedicate their entire force for the slated election. He also claimed that the first Constituent Assembly failed to produce new constitution as NC did not get majority and urged people to give majority to the NC in the upcoming polls.
The NC leader was of the opinion that only election would resolve the present political and constitutional crisis facing the country. He also appealed agitating 42 political parties to stop their protest programs and take part in the elections of the constituent assembly.
