Prime Minister Dr. Baburam Bhattarai has said that the political parties had no option but to hold election within May next year. Speaking at a press meet organized by the Revolutionary Journalists’ Association, Banke Chapter, here today, PM Bhattarai warned, “If election is not held by May, chances of losing republic can grow alarmingly.”
The government was effortful to clear constitutional and legal hurdles to elections, he said, adding that the ball is in parties’ court for national consensus. Government is not obstructing what the parties decide, he argued.
Similarly, the PM said technical issues of the election should be addressed before the third week of this month and if election is not possible, all parties should decide for a political outlet.
According to him, political outlet was not impossible if the parties became flexible, and responsible towards people.
Responding to a query, he said it was not only Nepali Congress President Sushil Koirala but also others could be a potential candidate for the prime minister. The prime minister argued that it was not his government that fomented corruption but was working to reduce it.
